Originally built as a shooting lodge by the esteemed Earl of Effingham, Boston Castle is a 2 story cuboid building standing tall on one of Rotherham's highest points in the grounds of Boston Park and Gardens which are themselves a lovely place to take a picnic.
Recently restored to former glory, the Castle is a Grade II listed building with modern visitor facilities added in. It also has a roof-top viewing platform (accessible for an apparently small but undeclared fee) which offers splendid panoramic views over Rotherham and Sheffield. You must arrange an appointment to visit this section however and for safety no toddlers are permitted up there and flat shoes must be worn. Take a camera though!
As well as the pleasing visit to Boston Castle itself, a disparate range of exciting events and activities are staged throughout the season and ideal for offering more bang for your buck to families. On-site car parking, toilet block and baby changing facilities are all available so it's a nice easy trip even with smalls in tow. Enjoy!
