This is no Warwick but what remains of Grosmont Castle is well worth a visit. You can sense the history and (carefully) climb the ramparts. Delightfully situated and free admission. A lovely way to spend an hour or two.

Great castle . Wear appropriate shoes when visiting as the steps to the tower are uneven and steep. Picnic bench also available
