Bolsover Castle

Bolsover Castle was built in the 12th century and occupies a hill top position offering excellent views over the Derbyshire countryside. The castle was captured, and destroyed, by Roundhead forces during the English Civil War; but was restored soon afterwards by William Cavendish.



Bolsover Castle is 6 miles east of Chesterfield and 6 miles north of Mansfield. It is open daily in summer but, with the exception of February half term week, only opens on Saturdays and Sundays between November 1 and March 31.
