My wife and teenage son spent a few hours exploring this wonderful castle. There are many stairs to climb and places to discover in this interesting and grand structure. Definitely worth a visit if you, like us, love a castle visit.

This is a great venue for all the family. There's lots of towers, corridors and dungeons to explore for a reasonable admission price. We also visited the ancestry place next door that was staffed by knowledgeable staff.

This was the second ghost walk l’ve been on at the castle, with the atmosphere, stories and Halloween approaching, it all added to the exitment of the evening. Well worth a visit.
