“A nice trip out”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

I have visited Castle Hill with my husband and with our son who is 4. It makes for a romantic stroll especially on a day with a decent sunset. During the day it makes for a nice picnic area. We have been inside the castle and the views from the top of the castle are even more stunning (albeit a little on the breezy side!). The views from anywhere on Castle Hill are amazing and there are some nice paths that take you around the hill with information about it dotted about. It would be better with some facilities such as toilets, picnic benches, more bins. However it is well worth a visit just for the stunning views on a nice day.

Free parking with a small charge to go inside the castle.

“Be the King of the Castle while surveying all Huddersfield Town.”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

It has gorgeous 360 degrees unspoilt views for miles around as it stems from an iron-age fort. There's masses of space for dogs to run and kites to fly, seats and springy grass to sit on, paths for gentle nature walks and free parking. It's popular but never crowded, a lovely spot to picnic with friends or be alone with your thoughts. Maybe one day the pub/hotel will be rebuilt to provide welcome shelter in poor weather and year-round refreshments.

“View from the top”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Not a lot to do at the top of Castle Hill but well worth a trip for the
view, especially on a clear day. Can see all the local surrounding
areas and maybe take a picnic with the family.

“OUR SENTINEL”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

You know you're home when you can see Castle Hill! I love this place, spent many happy hours here over the years with pals and dogs, now with my grandchildren. The views are breath-taking, kite flying is a joy, picnics are a treat. I do miss the pub and can only hope that one day it will be replaced. Just hope it's never ruined by visitor centres and rules! Hope it's forever free for everyone and their animals
