A beautiful walkabout. The castle ruins look down at the River Nidd. Fantastic views. I was too early to visit the courtroom museum but it sounds fascinating .

A really great start, to a short break, would be to find your way to this special Yorkshire medieval castle; with well maintained grounds and parkland nearby.
