‪Mixed review for Mountfitchet castle on one hand it was an interesting historical recreation with lots of things to see and on another it was dated and unloved meaning that it felt over priced

I went along with my son who is neurodivergent. There was more than one occasion when he jumped at something unexpected and hung onto me. There are motion sensor voices and background noises that come out of nowhere and he found it very unsettling. Although they are useful in telling people the purpose of the different building and spaces it felt a bit dated. Notice boards, Interactive displays or even audio tours would do the same and would not have the same issue of unsettling people with noise sensitivity, it felt as though this was put in place in 80s and has never been updated. And to be honest I went on a school trip in the 80s and I might be right.

Some of the interactive displays were rough around the edges as well and had seen better days, everything felt like it needed a bit more care and thought.

The dino display was also loud and my son found it too much, he jumped at a figure when entering the toy museum and it was too busy with things crammed everywhere so we didn't stay long, heading back to the open spaces and animals in the castle itself.

With this in mind £30 for one adult and one child felt expensive and there are definitely accessibility issues above the physical ones which are very well highlighted and communicated.

It could be so much better with a bit of updating and care but we had good weather, interacting with the animals is lovely and there is lots of freedom to explore the outdoor spaces in your own time.‬

‪Absolutely lovely day out. Well worth it.

We weren’t expecting much, but we ended up spending the whole day.

Lots to see & do, take a picnic!‬

‪Visited the castle & Toy museum over Easter and absolutely loved it . Although it was raining we really enjoyed climbing the towers , exploring the castles many buildings, feeding the animals and taking loads of photos . The children loved completing the Easter egg hunt and getting their medal and prize . We also loved the toy museum which is really well laid out and so interesting . All the staff were very kind and helpful and the food and drinks in the cafe were reasonably priced . Over all we loved our day and will definitely visit again either this year or in 2025 with our 3 children‬

‪As a history teacher and parent I’m always looking for interesting historical places to take my two children. I’ve been meaning to visit Mountfitchet castle for a few years now and I’m so glad we finally did. We had a brilliant day , the staff were so friendly and the whole attraction well laid out . The gate admission is fairly priced and not expensive . Go visit this year it’s great for parents and kids alike and my husband loved the toy museum AAAA+++‬

‪I went to Mountfitchet with my 14 year old son to see a recreated, wooden, motte-and-bailey castle of the Norman period; after all it is being advertised as such in their guide-book and online: 'the reconstruction you see here today is faithful and close to the way it would have looked around 1086, twenty years after the Conquest'.

Nothing could have been further from the truth. There is no defensive palisade, but a thin wooden plank fence, which has no battlement walkway. The 'wall' boasts a variety of fanciful, rickety towers (there shouldn't be any in a motte-and-bailey) - straight from a fairy tale! The 'castle' has no keep, which would be a central part of any motte-and-bailey structure. Individual buildings (the smithy, potter's workshop, carpenter's workshop, etc.) are inexplicably tiny, poorly recreated, with displays looking dirty & tired, and in a dire need of an update (the attraction was first opened in 1985; well, it REALLY feels 1985 - and not in a good way 😁

What Mountfitchet really is, is an early-medieval theme park or playground, for very young children (CBeebies age). What you find there does not justify the price, which is way too steep (£17 adult, £13 child).

The site contains a toy museum, which despite looking tired, cluttered, and old, is actually very interesting. My son loved feeding the resident rescue deer too - which is why I gave the site two stars rather than one!

And finally... NO, there would be no bloody ALCHEMIST in a NORMAN VILLAGE! 😂😂‬

‪Came here as a child myself and wanted to bring my family as my elder likes history. The written information and displays are really interesting. I like how they’ve tried to bring it to life. My 7 year old loved feeding the roaming animals. However my 10 year old who loves a castle visit was too upset by the gory figures to enjoy the visit. She may have been too sensitive but I get her point of view, they are rather macabre. I wonder if it could be done a little more sensitively so all the family can enjoy and learn in an age- appropriate way. The hanging man in the noose placed centrally was hard to avoid, is it necessary? A noose alone would have given us the idea. Maybe better for over 12s.‬

‪The castle does not have it's own car park but there is public pay and display parking opposite the entrance. This car park is divided into different sections with different rules, so it's advisable to check the rules and costs in the area you park. It might be beneficial to move to another area of the car park. In the long stay section nearest the skate park it is free to park all day on a Sunday.

I felt that the admission prices, Adult - £16, Child (3-13 years) £12.50, and OAPs £14.50 was expensive. There is an additional of charge of £1 per person (all ages) to visit the Haunted Manor section of the museum. There are no family tickets or other discounts, other than those offered to school or other large groups. As Mountfitchet castle seemed somewhat of an unusual attraction we decided to visit as a one off.

From the entrance to the site there is a steep rise of steps up to the entrance to the castle itself. There is an alternative path passed the café that avoids steps but is still quite steep. The castle is constructed of wood and whilst there are some pathways it is necessary to walk over grassed areas to view all the attractions. It is necessary to climb steps in the towers but there are some good views of the site and beyond from the top, and small displays in many of them. There are upstairs sections in the toy museum that are accessed via stairs. There is an ancient horrors walk through building, that consists of narrow passages, and a low ceiling. I had to bend over to walk around most of it. There are also some steep banks to negotiate to visit some of the attractions. In summary to enjoy all the attractions fully a certain level of fitness and mobility is required.

The Norman Village has tableaus in the buildings demonstrating aspects of Norman life often with commentary. Fire pits around the site add an element of aroma and atmosphere. Throughout the site there are interactive displays, e.g. trying to hit targets using a cross bow or other weaponry. Within the museum there is the opportunity to try on wartime helmets or to try (at additional cost) old arcade games.

On the path to the museum there are models of various dinosaurs. One of which has a surprise for visitors as they pass.

There are goats and deer within the site that are happy to eat food from visitors hands. Food bags can be purchased from the entrance/shop for £2 a bag.

There are picnic tables available and toilets near the café and in the museum. There is something to see/do for all ages. We visited as a couple and stayed for over 3 hours and would allow even longer if we had been accompanied by children. As such it could be argued that an entrance fee of £32 for a couple is reasonable. But £57 for a family of 2 adults and 2 children, an additional £4 to visit the haunted Manor and £2 per bag of feed, would make for an expensive family day out.

We had eaten before visiting so can not make any comment as to the café.‬

‪Better than I expected! We went with our toddler just for somewhere different, and we all enjoyed the couple of hours there. Toddler was loving running around the outside exhibitions with the free roaming animals. Partner loved the toy museum, and got very nostalgic. Felt like a place you’d visit on a school trip, so as adults this added to the nostalgia,

It is very steep in places but we made it round with a pushchair ok.

Only let down was the food situation. Very limited on offer and not gluten-free friendly- I had a choice of something in a shop-bought GF small bun, wish I’d just popped over to the Co-Op. And there was very limited seating unless you’re happy outside.‬
