Worth visiting if you’re in Rivington. You can park across from school. It’s a lovely walk down to the castle especially autumn time, or when it snows. Lovely views of resovoir behind castle, and nice to walk along the water too.

Brilliant place to take children if taking a walk around Rivington. This replica castle can unleash childrens imaginations of times gone by and the bonus is its free no expensive enterance fees.

I wouldn't advise making a trip to Rivington just to see Liverpool castle Replica, it wouldn't be worth it, but, if you are visiting Rivington anyway then maybe have a walk to the castle. The castle isn't well signposted, so if you have never been...More

Finding this place is a bit of a nightmare. If there are any signs, we did not see them. On a warm summer Sunday, everybody else seemed to visit the area to but I think they were mainly headed for Rivington Pike. You can park...More
