A very unusual ruin - leaning at a very strange angle. Important part of the towns history - and regional history too. Not much to see - but worth a look if you are in town, where there is much to see and enjoy.

For a short stay, if driving, park at Sainsbury's and walk into town. Buy a sandwich and use the town signs to get to the castle. It might not look much, but it's a pretty good backdrop to a quick bite and a walk around...More

Not much of a castle as such but a nice small garden/grounds. So interesting history to the place but by far it's biggest selling point is the views from the walk around the outer perimeter.

Walking around from the Cliff Railway (PLEASE WATCH OUT FOR THE DOGS MESS!), we visited the leaning ruins of Bridgenorth Castle and the pretty flower gardens. Nice in-touristy castle ruins - visited mainly by locals or those going for a wonder. I'm amazed that the...More

We walked the path around the remains of the castle, which had some lovely views. We then entered the gardens which were immaculately maintained. The castle remains had a remarkable lean to it. Lovely place to take pictures and rest a while.

Lovely walk around the castle gardens. The remains of the castle are amazing how they lean over and how unsafe they look!!
