“Pocket delight...particularly for kids”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Cromwell's castle is an ideal little excursion while on Tresco, particularly with kids. A great place to clamber over and explore with some wonderful views. As there are no wardens or turnstiles the fun you have (and your the responsibility for your own safety) is completely down to you and your kids' imaginations.

“Step back in time”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Fascinating - look out for the 18th century graffiti on the walls, then climb the hill to King Charles Castle for more great views and historical contexts

“Interesting addition to a coastal walk”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

On a sunny but breezy day we walked along the coast path, encountered this historic ruin and climbed all over it. Felt really adventurous but it is quite safe.
