So sorry to hear that. Good place to visit. Children and grand children all enjoyed it. Nice café as well.
Oh no, I love it here, what about the gardens and the it cafe ?
This is a shame Helen Baker xxx
Went there today, didn't see anything that concerned us, but we are not experts.
Please be fixed by the summer 👍🏼☀️😁
Many hours spent there when young
When I lived in Weymouth many years ago I seem to remember that the castle was fenced off for "safety' reasons. Didn't stop us getting in though. Just added to the excitement of being in there. Usually councils become more safety conscious and fence everything off - not the other way around.

Such a great shame. Hope they get it sorted to keep a great historical site preserved with it’s beautiful gardens surrounding
Such a Shane as the gardens are lovely. Hopefully the issue can be resolved
Love it here 🥰
Sadly I’ve never managed to visit there on our trips to Weymouth so hope they can reopen again one day🤞🏻
Spent every summer at Sandsfoot when children were little 💕
