Short visit worthwhile if close by
ybsae, Stockton-on-Tees, United Kingdom
We called in as it was close to our route home to Teesside from Northumberland, and it was an English Heritage site. It was worth a quick visit but perhaps not great value if you have to pay entry. There were many points of interest, but would not take up a great deal of time to see everything. Worthwhile if you are close by, but possibly doesn't warrant a long trip.
A Revelation !
Visited here recently in the company of an expert in stonemasonry who was able to point out and explain many of the features which I had missed on previous visits.It added another dimension to my understanding of castle building. A guide book from the shop is a useful thing to have with you as it explains some of the more unusual features.All in all well worth a visit.
Worth a half hour visit
Very little at this castle, information boards were minimal. Exhibition was boring. If an EH member then worth going as it is free, but wouldn't pay for it.
Small castle but worth a quick visit
166Wendy, Ringwood, United Kingdom
The castle is small although we didn't pay to actually go in as we had 2 children with us who had been sat in the car for hours and needed space!. We walked around the grounds and were able to see the moat, some of the ruins and also the mill. There is assess to a small shop and toilets without paying entry. The car park is small with several people having issues reversing in and out of spaces.
Prudhoe Castle replied: Hello Wendy, Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to Prudhoe Castle. Next time you're in the area, please do come inside. A family ticket is £13.00. This would allow you to explore the full site including the Keep and Great Hall. Hope to see you again soon. Thanks, Emily
Lovely Castle with regency manor house within its walls
The castle is open from 10am - 6pm (4pm in October) Wednesdays to Sundays from the end of March till the end of October. There is a lovely view of this small but beautiful castle from the lily-pond by the road. We found there was plenty to see and explore, and although the manor house is now the shop and 'museum' with story boards about the castle and its development since 1100, one can still get an idea of what it must have been like living there.
Prudhoe Castle replied: Thanks for your lovely review, glad you enjoyed your day out with us.
