  • Talk about a hidden gem. Small but packed with interesting things for the kids to do. Really brings the history of the area to life. Staff were super-friendly too. A great way to spend a few hours.
  • Fantastic day out. Lovely views, nice cafe and not too busy. The museum is interesting and has some great activities for the kids. High recommend a visit
  • A small castle but with a commanding position over the town. Views from the top are fantastic around the full 360 degrees. Good grounds extend around the castle and the visitor centre suits all age groups. The recently refurbished cafe is outstanding with inside and outside seating. Disabled access to the site is good where possible.
  • Great for a few hours with the kids. Parking was reasonably close and staff were genuinely interested in whether we'd enjoyed the visit. Would recommend for a family day out.
  • Lovely visit, enjoyed by myself and two children. Lots of information throughout, and things to see and do for children too. Good family time had.
