  • Hidden gem in the middle of the city. Nice place for a peaceful sit down and relax. Colourful garden in the summer. The castle itself is nice to look out outside but the advertised 360 degree view of the surrounding area from the roof is a bit of a joke.
  • Not much left of this castle, but you can visit it for a small fee. Not suitable for wheelchairs as there are stairs to go inside. Best part is an extremely colourful and well maintained garden full of flowers. Another garden Alice themed a few steps away. A couple of car parks are very close and useful for the lovely town centre.
  • Lovely gardens to walk or rest. A historic old building to look at from inside or outside. Great views from the top of the castle. Serene and peaceful. Even though it's located close to the high street. Entry to the castle grounds/gardens is free of charge. Entry to the castle itself requires payment. Not a lot to see inside but climbing the stairs to the top will provide pleasant views of the town and surrounding countryside.
  • Not very attractive​ on it's own, but it is the only castle and main hilltop in this tiny town. small 🏰 but had a decent over look over surrounding areas. Castle grounds are well maintained and provide for a relaxing stroll or lunch.
  • Really not what I expected based on the photos. I expected luscious green grounds but it was on the edge of the town centre. I wouldn't call it a tourist attraction but worth checking out for yourself.
