  • A good place to visit, close to parking and village centre. Entry is free which I expect is because the building you can walk round is quite small for a castle: despite this some interesting artefacts and very child friendly with activities to do including dressing up and shields to design. It would be better to visit on a sunny warm day so you could picnic beneath the castle walls.
  • Married there 18 years ago and my wife and I were still impressed by it, brilliant memories well worth a visit. Curator very well read about it and will pass it on to you
  • The castle itself is long gone but the Great Hall remains and contains a interesting bit of social history: ceremonial Horseshoes presented by visiting nobility over the centuries. Currently the site of an archaeological dig by Leicester University.
  • Free 2hr parking. Very pleasant staff. Excellent refurbishment. Love the history of the place.
  • Different great collection of horseshoes. Volunteers are helpful and knowledge- they make a point on introducing themselves and the building to all visitors
