Visited with our grandson who enjoyed the freedom to run around and climb the walls. Staff are always kind and helpful and the castle is always interesting.

What a wonderful site to visit. Fascinating and beautiful. We loved it. From the car park, the first sight is magnificent, with the moat, with lilies, and the great approach. The description boards are very helpful. The Chapel room especially is lovely.
