We went to Lulworth Castle and Park last month and, I must say, I was overawed by the place.
That being said, you have to take your time and look beyond what is infront of your face.
£3.00 for all day parking - bargain, £5.00 for entry into the Castle itself - very acceptable. Having also purchased a beautiful full colour glossy booklet about the place, for £1.00 -exceptional price and reading it in depth after, I was even more impressed.
Learning about all the different owner / occupiers, or should I say caretakers as that is how the present chap seems to refer to himself. (Sorry about the 'chap' bit, I couldn't remember the actual title of the gentleman :-) )
I found the upper, empty floor far more fascinating than the basement rooms that do have items in them, relevant to the original rooms purpose.
To see where supporting metal has melted in the heat of the fire; there is charred timbers in a few areas. I cannot really express how fascinated I was by the castle and it's previous owner / occupiers.
The grounds are impeccably kept. Yes, the Adventure playground area is a little tired but what do you want for £3.00 all day parking. It's free to wander the grounds and take advantage of said playground..
Having read one or two negative reviews, I think people need to open their eyes and look beyond what is directly under their noses. Read the history behind the blank walls. Oh, I just loved it!
I feel Lulworth Castle and Park is well worth a visit and I personally would not hesitate to go back again and again.
