Overview

This romantic castle with stunning views over Conisbrough, inspired Sir Walter Scott's Ivanhoe and still fires the imagination today. With floors and roof restored in the lofty circular keep you can fully appreciate the magnificence of the original 12th century building. Delve into the medieval world of Lord and Lady de Warenne, and enjoy the grassy areas around the castle walls for games and picnics

I first visited Conisbrough Castle with my class on a school visit. Since then, I was determined to return - I'm glad I did. The castle is well presented and there is plenty of information available - inside the museum and inside the castle. The...More

We stopped off here on our way to North Yorkshire and it made a pleasant break in the journey. The castle keep has been well restored and the clever audio-visual projections on the walls in each room help create an impression of what it would...More

Wanted a day trip out and this seemed perfect. The price was very reasonable and from the outside it looked great. Inside was no different; not many historic castles have areas where you could tell where rooms would have been, but this one you could...More

We visited as we were passing and as EH members could visit for “free”. The ruins are well kept and the kids enjoyed looking in all the crevices and rooms, and climbing up the tower. Also great views of the viaduct from the top. There...More

Stopped by when passing through Consibrough in case it was worth a visit. Plenty of free car parking space as you turn off the main road - disabled parking is available (presumably by arrangement) on the castle sit itself. Entry gate isn't signposted: don't take...More

We visited on a showery day with a bit of wind. Staff were really friendly and exceptionally knowledgeable. The castle keep is in ruins and most of the visit was inside the tower. It’s worth visiting on a day like we did as the renovations...More

There is no official cafe as that was got rid of during the improvements...however there is 'Mollys at Chimes' which is a 2 mins walk away, opposite the church in the village centre.
