Day Out to Bolsover Castle


After recently joining English Heritage I'm busy planning days out to visit some of their properties, and thought that Bolsover Castle would be a great place for a meetup!

The cost is £8.50 for adults, £7.70 for concessions, and free for English Heritage members.  Membership is £48 for 15 months.

In January the castle is open from 10-4, so meeting at 11 should give us plenty of time to look round, drink tea, eat lunch etc!

I suggest that we meet in the cafe at 11.00, I'll be there drinking tea :-)

This is a joint meetup with Nottingham City and Country Explorers.

See below for more information about the facilities...

    Did anyone else go? I didn't see anyone else - shame as it is quite interesting (though probably better in summer - its a very exposed site...)

    I've been to this castle on many occasions, I would suggest going in as few cars as possible as the car park isn't very big!

      Lisa, you have just given your mobile number out to the whole group. It is sometimes best to click on the persons profile and email them directly. The people here are trusty it seems, but just be aware.

    Hi Philippa! A very big thank you! Yes, I can get into town to get a lift with you to Bolsover Castle. If I stood outside La Tasca would that help you to spot me?

      Hi, yes that would be good as it is really near where I live. Shall we say 9.30am? Philippa.

    I'm really looking forward to this. I have a good camera which I'm still trying to figure out so will bring it. Don't think i've ever been here before actually. I might do an article for my magazine on the history and culture too.

    I'd love to go, but like Rachel (see comment below) I'm without a car. I'm happy to share petrol costs with any kind soul who's driving out to Bolsover. Like Rachel, I'm also in NG5, so perhaps three of us could travel together? I shall wait hopefully.....

      I have no car either so my Dad has kindly offered. There are two spaces free in the back as my boyfriend doesn't fancy it. I live in the Lace Market, could you get into city centre? Best wishes Philippa

    Do we need tickets in advance or just all turn up?

    • Charlotte

      You can pay on arrival, or join English Heritage in advance or on the day. See the links above for more information.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
