Climb to the ruins of this 13th century castle and enjoy wonderful views over the Cheshire Plain. You can park at the car park on Chapel Road and then follow the nice walking trail up to the castle ruins. From here you can enjoy one of the most spectacular views of any castle in England. You can see across eight counties from the Pennines in the east to the Welsh mountains in the west. There's also an exhibition detailing 4000 years of the castle's history and 40 acres of woodland trails.
The Sandstone Trail runs past the castle so you can pick this up to extend your walk. If you head south you will soon come to Peckforton Castle and the Peckforton Hills where you can enjoy some nice woodland trails.
You can virtually explore some of the castle grounds on the google street view link below.
