What our visitors say about the castle

Emma Rieley 
I visited yesterday and just wanted to say thank you for a lovely day, it was my first time visiting and it was brilliant.
I especially really enjoyed the falconry display and Luke was fantastic. Do the falconry team have their own social media showing their work with the birds? I couldn't find anything but please pass on my thanks to Luke, if it wasn't such a scorching day, I would have loved to have spoken to him more about the birds.
Hope you're well and thanks again.

Best castle I've EVER been to
Absolutely loved it here, we were lucky enough to come when people were in costume. Master David provided a GREAT tour, very very interesting, extremely knowledgeable, and humorous. I would recommend it to anyone

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Bolton Castle. The way the castle was exhibited was fantastic, it gave you a real feel for what it would’ve been like. The staff were so passionate, especially Dave who took the time to share his knowledge with our children in a very engaging way. The tea and pasties were delicious and it was lovely to be able to see the birds of prey in the gardens. We would definitely recommend visiting.

Brilliant Castle with lots to see and do - and a great café too!
What a fantastic Castle! So much to see, every room was so interesting. Lots of info, but not too much to get boring. The day we visited was bright and sunny, the view from the roof top was truly 360' and we could see for miles! The star of the place was LEE! He did a brilliant chat and display of Archery and then we were truly entertained and informed about the birds of prey that he obviously is totally passionate about, flying display and close-up contact with beautiful birds. It was superb. Finally we went to see the Wild Boars with their little Humbug piglets! Our lunch in the cafe was delicious and so fresh. We cannot recommend this highly enough.

From all of us at YDCCC a huge thank you for Sunday. Please thank all of the staff at the castle for being  very kind and extremely helpful. Everyone  who attended was very happy at the location for our picnic as you can imagine. It was also nice to see visitors having a look around the cars. Sadly with the arrival of the rain we had to leave in a hurry and did not get to thank the staff in person. So please pass on my thanks to all who helped to make our day a very special one. Look forward to visiting again in the future.
