We visited Knaresborough Castle one afternoon. Parking was close by, the usual pay and display. We enjoyed a walk through the castle down to the river. The sight of the railway bridge was excellent. An enjoyable afternoon.

If your a history buff you have to visit. Met a lovely lady who is the keeper of the ravens , but the view from to the river is absolutely amazing. You can walk down to the river and there are more sights to see on your way to mother shiptons. But if your packed up the top of the hill , be prepared fir a long walk up a steep hill. A beautiful area, stunning

This is a striking building (well ruin) in the pretty village of knaresborough. I was distressed though to see the castle ravens tethered outside with tourists scaring them and nobody there to protect them.

A low cost couple of hours. Visit the small museum and remains of the castle - friendly staff - worth a visit. And then walk down the hill and experience the river setting, cafe and boating

Worth a look if you are in the area. Great view over the river, and went through the sallyport - which was shorter than imagined but all very charming
