A very interesting tour The castle is an early example of a motte and bailey castle, the motte being the mound. The remains of the walls are made of flint. The castle is ruined now. We attended for a free guided tour as part of the Heritage Open Days. We were visiting relatives in the area. We were lucky that it was a glorious sunny day in September. Our guide was interesting and knowledgeable, he really knew the history of the castle. It was lovely to see lots of families picnicking in the castle grounds even if they did not fully appreciate their surroundings. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour.

Peaceful sanctuary on an historic spot I visited this site on one of the hottest and sunniest days of the year. There is not much left of the castle now with just some walls, a bit of the kitchens and the hill. There was a very small visitor room. However it was very nice just sitting in the sun for a few hours with a good book. Very nice surroundings.

Atmospheric ruins Berkhamsted Castle is unique in that it had three moats but now you can only see two as the outermost one was drained & ultimately destroyed (as was the main gatehouse) for the arrival of the canal, railway & subsequent development at this point. There's not much left of the castle walls, just a few sections, but the earthworks are interesting & there's some good areas for exploration - if you climb the motte you get a good view over the huge bailey area. When I was there there were lots of children running round & having a lovely time, and families picnicing. Best of all, it's free! The visitor centre tells the castle's history (there's loads) and Berkhamsted is the town where William the Conqueror was finally offered the crown of England after the battle of Hastings in 1066.
