Went with the family during Easter break. The ruins are great can imagine how it used to be. There is a kids play area at the back with tennis courts and crazy golf.

This castle is good for a quick stop. Parking may be a challenge. One wall of the castle remains. Foundation stones are present in part of the castle, so you can make out some of the rooms.

It was built by Ralph Neville to defend the English from Scottish invasions. It was later turned into a palace for Richard III. It is now a large ruin, located in a city Park. There is parking at the rail station across the road.

As ruins go, there are much larger structurally but its free and the info boards do give you an idea of what this small castle meant to the area.

The nearby crazy golf and playground are great. We came across the castle ruins on a treasure trail of the town which also took us to the crazy golf and playground which the children loved. If you have kids then bring them here on a nice day. The ruins were very dramatic to look at and we visited on a lovely clear day so they looked really nice. Good for a picnic and over the road from
McDonald’s (very busy!) and the train station.

This could be really lovely but sadly when we visited it was being used by youths smoking weed and messing about. The McDonald’s built across from it and the main road right by it just doesn’t seem right either. It could be such a special piece of history.

Located opposite Penrith Train Station, in Penrith. I definitely can see a vision of improvements, such as; more information boards, accessible paths, interactive things for children to name a few. However it’s easy to access, & free!

Thank you for visiting and your review. We are pleased you enjoyed the castle. Brougham Castle is less than two miles away from Penrith Castle. Brougham was once a formidable barrier against Scots invaders and a prestigious residence of the powerful Clifford family, and today the remains of the castle are picturesquely sited by the River Eamont. There is a shop selling gifts, drinks and snacks. Brougham, along with Countess Pillar, Mayburgh Henge and King Arthur's Round Table, can all be visited on a walk devised by the Eden Rivers Trust.

Free, open during park opening hours. Good information boards. Some labelling. Some steps. Some unguarded drops to be aware of if with children. Toilet block in park.

Staggeringly overrated and completely under whelming. What is there to look at? A nice way to greet new comers to the town but little else going for it.
