Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Knaresborough Castle is a Scheduled Ancient Monument which is owned by the Duchy of Lancaster and maintained by Harrogate Borough Council. While the castle is open seasonally, the grounds are open as a public park all year round and provide a haven in the centre of the town. The castle stands on top of a high cliff and has dramatic views across to the viaduct and the River Nidd. The grassed areas are enhanced with mature trees and flowerbeds.

The views from the castle overlooking the River Nidd and viaduct are breathtaking. You can access the castle from the town centre, if you would like to avoid the steep climb up from the riverside walk. Amazing & well worth a visit.

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.
