Overview

With spectacular views over Derbyshire, the fairy-tale Stuart mansion, Bolsover Castle, was designed to entertain and impress. Its reputation for revelry lives on as we now entertain you and your family. Wander the lavish rooms of the Little Castle, explore the romantic ruined terrace range, and delight in the views from the wall walk. Start your visit in the exhibition in the Riding House then run wild in extensive grounds (and fun play area).

Largish castle relatively intact with an interesting history. Provision of audiovisual electronic guides with different video/talks for adults and children add to the experience. Worth visiting to see the indoor arena from which modern dressage can trace back its roots and also the intact paintings...More
