If you like castles then this is a "must see". The grounds are magnificent with great views and picnic locations. Inside there is a splendid display of armour and weapons. The library is very impressive making me wish to be able to browse the books....

Great castle with nice cafe and beautiful gardens. The castle is stunning and the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. There are great activities available including archery, broomstick training, dressing up and interactive props. A lovely day out.

Great castle to bring children. Lots of activities for them. Unfortunately I felt it took away from the atmosphere of a historical site. A bit too commercial. .

The tour guide showed us the various areas used in films (primarily Harry Potter). We enjoyed the grounds and sites. Castle is in amazing condition. This was one of our favorite English castles.
