‪Little left to see of the castle but still a site of historical interest. Locals seem to think they own the site as previous reviewers have stated they don't want you to park near their homes or in the small layby before the bridge-repeated honking ruins the peace and tranquility of the area. Despite the locals, church is lovely to visit while you are there.‬

‪i) Park on the main road in the village - there is no parking at the the site which is part of a working farm
ii) In view of it's historic signoficance little is there to celebrate it.
iii) Take some walking shoes and incorporate a walk down the Nene Way‬

‪Not a lot there, could have the visitor information updated to tell more about the history. Parking was a problem and actually found it very dangerous as we had to park over the bridge. Would be better improved with car parking facilities.‬

‪How little remains of Fotheringhay Castle, and yet how important its place is in the history of our islands.

If wanting to visit this site on account of history you will not need long; little remains of Fotheringhay. A weighted kissing gate (which I confess flummoxed us; kissing gates aren't weighted in our part of the word) is the entry to the site, which is soon followed by an informative board giving a description of the site as it was in the time of Elizabeth Tudor. A hill, which the imagination can place a keep on top of, is perhaps the main indicator of what was once on site, although there is a small section of stonework nearer the river edge, which is accompanied by a memorial plaque to Mary Stuart; Stuart's time at this site arguable being the main reason for the amateur historian to visit. While there is little left of the Castle our visit (in the late afternoon of a moody, atmospheric autumnal day) was captivating. The site definitely has an aura about it, though I imagine the charming riverbank setting would lend itself to a few hours here if you came with a picnic.

With little to see here this site may disappoint some, but catch it in the right mood and Fotheringhay will leave a mark on the visitor.‬

‪Ok, there's not a lot to see here, but the descriptions on the information boards allow you to imagine what a magnificaent castle this would have been. The birthplace of RichardIII and the execution place of Mary, Queen of Scots, makes this a fascinating place‬

‪...but, so littlest to see of it. However, it's still well worth a visit. As you enter the site through the 'kissing gate', you are welcomed by an I formation board giving artists impressions of what Fotheringhay Castle used to look like. The old most is still recognisable, and there are steps up to the top of the mind that used to house The Keep.

Down by the river is a chunk of remains of the castle, but only a small chunk. But, if like me, you are drawn to all things historic, it was good to sit withing the grounds that remain, go online using my telephone and research the Castle, its history and that of its most famous occupants and, dare I say, guests.

Such a shame Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, came to be executed here but nice to see that folk have taken the time to offer remembrance in the form of a Stuart Tartan ribbon on the memorial plaque.

My visit was with young children and teens and actually lasted over an hour...the kids loved it.

And finally, not a site to visit if you are not mobile. Also, there are no public amenities and the site is not accessible by wheelchair...unless you can lift it over the state and it's an 'off-road' type.‬

‪Now don't get me wrong. This excursion will take you around 10 minutes and then it's over. There isn't a lot to see here. To the unhistorical nut, it is a field... with sheep... and a rock... but, looking closely, and doing your research, for those who love Richard III, this is his birthplace.

No, there isn't much left of this landmark and it is quite disappointing but it is nice to go and see. There are information boards there too so you aren't completely lost as to what is what. This is also the place where Mary Queen of Scots was beheaded (or imprisoned, I cannot remember). It was nice to see rosaries and people paying their respects here.

You can walk up the steps and stand right at the top which is a beautiful view. This isn't a place I would recommend for those who struggle to walk.

Parking is a bit funny here but you can park down the road on the right hand side and walk up which only takes a few minutes. It looks like you cannot park here but I saw loads of reviews saying you could.

Overall, I think this is a great place for those interested in history and visiting the area.‬

‪Well there’s not much left of Fotheringhay Castle just the earthworks and moat but it’s free and well worth a visit. Great views to be had and it’s right next to the river Nene. Take your camera it’s worth it. ‬

‪Gorgeous village of Fotheringhay is hiding a significant historical site! No obvious signage, blink and you miss the entrance to the footpath. Houses nearby have “no parking” signs in their windows yet there is an absence of double yellow lines and official parking restriction notices. Ignoring the home made signs we parked on the main road and took the footpath, a couple of minutes later we were in front of the mound where the keep once stood. A sign provides some info but not masses. Having climbed the mound the view from the top is beautiful. Also visible was the remaining part of castle which is now fenced off. Touched to see the tributes and rosaries left on the fencing surrounding the last bit of castle wall. Beautiful countryside, very simple site, blink and you would miss it. Spent about 40 minutes here.‬
