This is run by English Heritage and is one of their better preserved and more interesting historical attractions. I often take visitors there who are charmed by a near 1000 year old Castle. The recent update has added much of interest and it is worth an hour of anyone's time. The walk up to the Castle along aptly named Castle... More

Came here for a friends wedding. Amazing venue. Lovely historic castle. Great architecture. Nice grounds. Very close to centre of Farnham to explore day after. Free parking on site. Staff were very good & provided excellent customer service. The hall used for the wedding breakfast was well laid out & a nice place to eat. The areas used for the... More

Farnham castle is situated, on a hill top, only about 10 minutes walking distance from the town center. The access road; near the castle, is relatively steep and involves climbing a steep set of steps, but the effort is worthwhile. For those troubled by climbing; you can reach the place by car and there is a small, free of charge,... More

I stayed there for 1 night for a wedding, the venue itself is beautiful, one of the nicest wedding venues i`ve seen in England. We checked in few hours before the wedding started, the room was big but very dated and the bedding wasn't very nice, there was an ancient telly in the room about the size of a laptop... More

Great little tourist spot just a short walk away from the town centre with views spanning across Farnham and the surrounding countryside, along with historical background and information. Great little afternoon

Think that 1066 was the last invasion of Britain? Think again! Situated at the top of Castle Street the castle has a small car park but is mostly uncrowded. Otherwise there is a steep walk from the Village. Standing at the top of a hill overlooking the town of Farnham, at the edge of Farnham Park, is this motte and... More

Lots of information is provided at the entrance through an audio guide, which is quite nice. We went on a Saturday around noon and there was almost no one. So I liked that it wasn't very crowded and you could stay as long as you wanted. It is a shame that it was quite cold and foggy so we couldn't... More

Farnham Castle towers above the pretty town and commands 360 views across the Surrey countryside. There's a new visitors centre with a good display about the history of the castle. There are things to touch and interface with and there's level access. The castle is atop a steep set of steps and is well worth the climb. The views are... More

A simple castle high above Farnham for those wishing to escape the shops of town. Sit on the chairs on the green lawn out front or climb the stairs for a birds-eye view of Farnham. Great little heritage piece from the 12th century and quite the wedding place for those so inclined. It is worth the climb especially if you... More
