Reasons for trip

The sun was still shining when we arrived at Conisbrough Castle, I wondered how I would get up to the top of the castle as we had already walked a long way. But after paying the required amount we were comitted. We felt a bit disgruntled as the very small car park was full and we had to park on the road on an incline. However we were made to feel welcome by the very friendly ladies who worked there. I bought a bottle of water it cost £1.60, which amazed me. Soon we were climbing steps to the entrance, and enjoying the interior of the castle watching a little film on the wall of the castle. Up more steps, it was a similar layout each floor you went to. There was some intricate historical stonework to admire in parts. At the very top we admired the view over the area including the viaduct. My husband was much more interested than me as its where Ivanhoe was filmed and he loved Ivanhoe as a child. It was very quiet, only one more couple looking around, and its not that large a castle. There was a lot of information to read at the entrance area to the castle.
