We spent a good hour exploring all the little nooks and crannies and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The place is massive and well worth the entry cost.

We loved spending time at this unfinished castle. We really enjoyed reading about what was envisaged here - it would have been a magnificent architectural feat when completed. Worth a visit as it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

It is a really lovely place in an easy to get to location. Well laid out and accessible. The presentation is good. Not too long and to the point.

Such an odd castle in many ways, but very interesting. Some nice exhibits and would improve from a few more. Really loved the views and a really enjoyable morning. Worth a visit.

It's best seen when there is something happening. Try and time your visit to coincide with a re-enactment or other displays.
