  • Amazing historical place. Really nice location. Lots of climbing spiral staircase so where appropriate shoes ! Could do with a decent cafe.
  • A very impressive old castle with lots of views and areas of beauty. Your able to walk around almost every part of the old castle giving a very inclusive feeling and there are a good number of information boards explaining what different areas are. It has a relaxed feel like you strolling round a park with no rush to get you in and back out
  • Must see castle in the UK. This castle is one of the best, it's the perfect balance of untouched and restored. Use you imagination to see what it would have looked like but with many of the original rooms and battlements preserved. I have been here dozens of times and it never gets old.
  • Lovely castle, but access is up a fairly steep hill on foot, and the castle walk through has a small uphill gradient too. Small car park outside, but more options available nearby. Lovely views over the river.
  • Although not actually entering the castle grounds themselves, the trail running alongside the castle was a perfect place to pull out our picnic blanket and enjoy our packed lunch whilst taking in the views of the castle and surrounding park.
