  • I'm living next, 12 km, and love watching the story live and in color. The entry is given by a patch of dirt in the center of the city, with parking close and with low cost. The ruins are well cared for, the garden ... The preservation is given by the value of history in Uk, after so many wars, this castle was devastated during a civil war, but many achievements were worth getting to know the city, has the Cathedral next door.

  • Even when the castle is closed there is access to a footpath which goes right round the castle and the bridge over the moat is also accessible. Worth a visit in winter if there's mist/moat's frozen/sn...  more »
  • Not much to say really. Also not much to see...particularly for the money you have to part with. For history buffs, really. Young kids don't appreciate it and would much prefer a kick about in the par...  more »

  • Great little castle, never fully constructed. A great spot for a half day visit, this is a very early example of building castles/palaces in brick . open during the summer on Saturday's, Sunday's and Bank Hol's. Small car park (but never seems full), dog's allowed but no toilets and limited range of items for sale.
  • Awesome place with a charming story behind it. Bringing my kids here was a great day out and a fascinating experience! The brickwork in the castle was exquisite.
  • Shame it isn't open all year round. Idyllic setting, really peaceful.
  • Open on Saturdays Sundays and Bank Holidays from 1st May to 1st Sept a very nice place to visit good pub next door that dose hot food
  • I used to play there as a child in the 1970's. I think it was 2p to go in. One of us would distract the old man in his little shed at the end of the drawbridge while the others sneaked past. He MUST have known what was going on when there was suddenly a dozen kids running around with invisible machine guns. Probably not worth travelling too far to see it tho.
