Well worth adding to your itinerary if in the area. Parking is pay and display but refunded on admission to the castle. Plenty of steps to climb but well worth it for the stunning views from the top. Rooms are well laid out and explained...More

I certainly recommend Castle Bolton. It is truely magnificent in both its ruins and preserved parts. Coupled with the gardens, this makes for an amazing 3 or so hours visit. If windy or cold take a warm coat and hat/s to counteract these effects
