  • Beautiful historic place situated in the Yorkshire countryside. There are loads of local shops selling beautiful gifts, antiques and other design pieces. The parking is easy to find and fairly priced for the duration that you might want to stay.
  • A small entrance fee is required but at no extra cost you can have an audio tour which is very informative. The staff are very friendly and their gift shop is rather reasonably priced and stocked with some great items even real replica medieval armour
  • Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Really good audio guide to listen to at own pace as we went around. Very well maintained with interesting exhibition on. Liked the strategically positioned benches for picnic.
  • The staff at the site are very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. There is a lot left of the castle itself, making for an interesting day out. Coupled with some rare, but lovely, weather and you couldn't ask for more. The visit was so good, we went back again a couple of weeks later.. well worth a visit!
  • Interesting and stimulating. Lots to see. Beautiful views. Shop excellent
