Edward I built a stone castle on this hill, which later fell into disrepair, and later restored by Oliver Cromwells forces during the English Civil War in 1642.

We were passing the Hill so gave it a look. It does show you some great history landmarks in the City i.e some of The University's. when you reach the top some people have been ignorant and littered but worth a look and some photos

As the title says: But sometimes is full of people or weed smokers. Nothing to be worried about just be careful when it's lots of people. P.S - You can take nice photos from the hill and awesome panoramas.

It's the highest point in Cambridge and the site of the Norman castle. You get good views of the city. But it is just a mound.

We walked all the way up Castle Hill to get to Castle Mound. Should have done a bit of research on trip advisor first. Good views of Cambridge, it is a historical site but not the site I thought it would be. I wouldn't go...More

If you are a castle bagger (apologies, phrase stolen from earlier post) then this is easily accessible, an easy tick. There is ample parking as it adjoins the local council building, while the walk from the city isn’t taxing. It is, however, no more than...More

Interesting landmark ,easily acsessed and worth investigating.just on the outskirts of town only takes 10minutes to walk there from the centre or at weekend you can park right next to it in the pay and display.
