Would recommend going up to castle if visiting. Castle interesting but the main attraction is the views at the top. Walk up to it not as long as it may look either.

Aside from the very steep walk up to the Castle. I was not happy with the woman working in the entrance to the site. Very abrupt and unfriendly. She certainly wouldn't win any customer service awards. It really doesn't hurt to smile when approached by a friendly family with excited children. Quite rude to be honest. We visited at 1pm...

Not too difficult a climb, just take your time and admire the views on the way. However, once you have reached the top the views are stunning.

Set in a beautiful village with loads of parking, pubs, little cute shops etc. Peveril sits high above. A breathtaking monument (in more then one way) well worth a visit. Though if you can't do hills do go as it's massive!

What a position on the hill with views over Castleton and across the valley. On a good day with a bit of sun you can sit in peace and enjoy the view. Stunning countryside, zig zag climb, it's a good weather activity as the only remaining structure is the keep. Probably something you would do once for the views. There... More

Short sharp uphill walk from the entrance centre puts you above Castleton with stunning views over the valley. There is enough to see within the ruins including the remaining tower.

Lovely castle. Great views of the area. Castle and walls are a ruin and only the keep can be walked in/on - it has two floors and is open to the elements. Steep but short climb to the castle. Dogs on leads are welcome.

Fabulous climb, and very much worth it. Paths are well maintained, so an accessible way for less mobile travellers to get some of the Peak district views. Castleton was heaving, even in March, and every tea place booked when we got done, so reserve a spot before you walk up!

An English Heritage property. A real trek up a hill, so not for the faint hearted or unfit, but well worth the walk (though there's plenty of benches on the route). Peveril is a ruin, and there's not an awful lot of it left. but the views are beautiful. Gives you a real sense of perspective and of the history... More
