So glad we made the effort to visit this castle/museum. Full of interesting information from Nelson's visit to nearby Foley House to Cromwell's letters and a stone commemorating the visit of Eleanor and her husband Edward I (Longshanks) and many more. A big thank you...More

Not much to see but beautiful grounds and very friendly staff. Difficult parking but the small museum has a few interesting facts. Shame for the rubbish but worth it since it was free.
