Well today’s paper states that the cost of the Wisbech council’s proposals for the Castle will increase their precept by 34%. In the past we have attended Performances of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and a community archaeological dig. Hope that the town council come up...More

This fascinating site is in the possession of Cambridgeshire county council however they wish to divest themselves of the responsibility for maintaining it. Well worth a visit but the future use and ownership is uncertain. Visit it if you can.

We enjoy going to Wisbech castle to see how it has been restored and also to go in the dungeons. They also do the nicest cream teas. It's peaceful in the garden also.

I have lived and worked locally since 1981 and was suprised to see what was hidden. Well worth a look especially if you are interested in history.

Having lived in the Wisbech area most of our lives we decided to go and see this historical "castle" All I can say is we were both very disappointed with the house the actual leaflet with the history was more interesting than the castle

I found this as I was searching for somewhere to go on a 'Heritage Day'. This is a really interesting visit with very knowledgeable people to talk to. The history of the site is fascinating, revealing why this Georgian house is called Wisbech Castle. Sadly...More

Yes disabled parking near library. 'Castle' being taken over by the town council so don't know whether it is open to public at present. This castle is a building that is on the site of the former castle.
