    A lovely castle with good information about how it used to be. You can climb up inside the castle. My grandson [ 5] loved it as it really sparked his imagination  more »

    Well preserved castle from Norman times. Plenty of history detailed and enough corridors and staircases for the children to run and up and down. The steep banks also encourage sliding down too!  more »

  • For all holiday makers visiting the UK like we, this castle is a must, not much for the children for for history lovers a real bargain. A well preserved Castle which offers a sense of what life would have been like in those days. Parking is Free although be careful not to miss the signs. We had a lovely hot summers day but was pested by some kind of beetle as we wore yellow. We really enjoyed our visit a can only recommend it further.
  • Not a huge amount to see or do. You definitely couldn't make a day of it, an hour or two maybe. Still worth a visit though, it very imposing and interesting to look round
  • There's not loads to see but the price goes to the upkeep of places like this so it's worth the £4 or so. Well preserved castle which you can explore but only takes 10minutes or so to get around it. Still an important bit of history that should be preserved.
  • Fascinating castle. Cheap entry. Dogs welcome. Lots of space for children to play in the grounds.
  • Perfectly restored to create a sense of what was but retain its ruined authenticity. Your imagination and kids can run wild.
