The castle is excellent value for money, it is family friendly and the entrance price includes the toy museum too which is great. It is lovely to see the animals wondering around the castle and that they can be fed. There is loads to see in the castle and the toy museum you certainly need quite a few hours to... More

The children love coming here, especially feeding the animals and climbing in the fort. They also like the adjacent Toy Museuim.

We visited the castle when our niece and nephew were staying nearby with the in-laws and were very pleasantly surprised. The castle offers so much to do, from following clues around the various areas - the kids learn stuff but they don't know they are learning! - to petting the animals to having a bite to eat or even trying...

Today was my third visit, although the first in nearly twenty years. Went with our two children, aged 9 and 6. Spent about 3 and a half hours here, including the toy museum and quick stop for lunch. Not sure if the admission is cheaper than it used to be (£10.50 for adults, £8.50 for children), as I didn't think... More

My friends and I visited here on a Wednesday during half term at the end of October. We arrived about 10 minutes before they opened but we were able to buy our tickets and wait in the shop area. I would recommend early arrival as it was practically empty and as we left about 2 hours later there was quite... More

I visited yesterday day with my daughter (17 months), Nephew (12 months), step-niece (12) & step-nephew (7) & my dad. Obviously the two toddlers were not interested in any of it other than the freely roaming animals & ducks. However, the other two children had a lovely day running around, exploring etc.. Lots of things could be improved but overall... More

Today we visited Mountfitchet Castle with two children aged 10 & 12 and grandad. We first visited the old fashioned toy museum. Slightly interesting but my two kids got bored of this very quickly. Maybe great for adults who want to reminise on the past, but I think even grandad wasn't enjoying it! We then moved onto the castle. The... More

Week set out to keep families entertained all day long. Activities to keep the kiddies going and plenty to do. Not just a castle but a toy museum too which is interesting in its own right
