Tips

  • Dan Hobson

    The striking ruins of Peveril Castle stand high above Castleton and afford magical views over the Peak District. Mentioned in the Domesday survey, it is one of England's earliest Norman fortresses and was built by Henry II in 1176.

    The castle is managed by English Heritage. Entry costs £6.20 for adults, £3.70 for children (5-17 years), and £5.60 for concessions. For opening times and more information, visit: english-heritage.org.uk/visit/places/peveril-castle.

    Beautiful place, there is a great view up the Cave Daley valley. Wish I had time to go round the other side for a close up view/visit.
