If you’re planning a family day out in Cheshire, then a visit to Beeston Castle in Tarporley fits the bill perfectly. This 'Castle of the Rock' is famous for its spectacular views, which take in no less than eight counties on a clear day. From its lookout point at the top of a mighty crag, you can see from the Pennines all the way to the Welsh mountains.
But that’s not the only reason why Beeston Castle is one of the best-loved visitor attractions in Cheshire. There are beautiful woodlands to explore around the castle, with wildlife trails for the children to follow, and even the chance to find the lost treasure of Richard II.
Open daily, our new kiosk serves locally produced hot and cold snacks. Hot and cold drinks are also available. Perfect for when you want to take a break during your visit.
