Basically the title says it all. If you want to look at some old stones from behind a fence then this is the place for you!! Poor signage and only street parking.

While Weoley castle has a public viewing area that is open almost every day of the year, this is behind a mesh fence and therefore not great. However throughout the year they hold events (check their website) where you can see the castle close up....More

We paid £2 each to get in and there was a display amongst the ruins of various different birds of prey. There was a factual talk on each bird and they flew sometimes quite close to you…. the highlight was the last bird circled around...More

Rarely open to the public. The Castle ruins can be seen from behind a fence only most of the time. There are other walks and castle remains within 10 miles with better views.
