Paid to go here once and found it quite expensive to get in, wouldn't pay again, once you get to the top there's not much else to do, it's free to sit on the grounds and take a picnic so that's what we do now. Think people in conisbrough should get a discount to go as it's on our doorstep

Even at 10.30am on a Monday morning the Castle was being besieged by parties of local Schoolchildren, but if you arrive at 10.00am you can get the Castle virtually to yourself. Free but limited car parking is about 100 yards away and at £5.10 for non English Heritage members it's reasonable value, although to be honest unless there's a special... More

Brilliant place to spend a few hours especially on a warm day. Lovely grounds to wander around and climbing up in the turret is ace.

Spent a good hour or so with a castle mad son of mine. You can walk round the castle in quite a short time, but if you plan it for a main attraction ie. jousting match/exhibition evening then its really good. They have a quaint souvenir shop which stocks a multitude of old coins, books, postcards etc, which are not... More

Upon approaching Conisbrough castle you almost expect the castle to be complete but when you step inside the crumbling castle walls you see that only the circular inner keep has survived (after some serious restoration of course!) It is lovely to spend some time wandering around the old walls and trying to imagine the castle as complete. There is not... More

It has to be said, there is not a vast amount to this ruin but English Heritage has done its best to bring it to life and an interesting and well laid out exhibition tells the history.

Such a stunning back drop for a lovely Remembrance Weekend. A lovely local Visitor attraction. I've grown up with this Castle as my playground. Better visitors centre now too! Go Visit!

Good to see how they lived in castles in medieval times. Not good for anyone who can't climb steps. No wheelchair access

Noticed the castle on Great Railway Journeys and we thought never been.Word of advice pick a clear dry day the views are very impressive,plenty of cartoonish information but steep gradients and a lot of steps with no assistance noticeable available.
