  • Absolute gem of a place to visit. Wonderful architecture, loads of history, beautiful grounds and very informative tours by local volunteers, all absolutely free. There is so much going on here I am looking forward to many more visits over the coming years. Highly recommended.
  • The surrounding park is huge and great for dogs. Also there was child friendly things going on. Castle however was closed.
  • Fabulous lots of activities and fun for all ages even if the weather isn't great. Good value if your near with a years pass as well
  • Castle closed for restoration but lovely walk through the park.
  • beautiful place but the only problem is you have to pay to get in there
