Nice to walk around before lunch perhaps. But its not possible to get inside so its the walk which is the point and not the history.

Well worth a visit if you are in the area, especially good for kids. Has some great events throughout the year jousting and knights etc. Need to keep your eye on the local adverts or in the tourist press.

We visited the ruins on the weekend reenactment which i think only happens one weekend in August every year. And wow what a day. The whole area is done up to look like visiting knights coming to compete in sword fighting, archery and jousting and...More
