  • Great for an hour or so. Lovely location and very interesting castle. Nice one for kids to explore but best for good weather.
  • Really lovely. Lots of history. Well worth a visit. English heritage. Free parking.
  • Was once the largest castle in Devon but now a ruin. An English heritage site with a small shop and toilet facilities. There is an audio you of the castle available. Ok for a quick visit to look round the castle which is allegedly haunted. There is a small car park with picnic area. There is also a Riverside walk.
  • Picturesque location but not an awful lot to explore. Audio tour provides plenty of info but the site itself is largely a ruin. Still a pleasant afternoon.
  • A castle with an interesting history. Henry 8 had it built. It has guarded the channel for centuries. It is spacious and well preserved.
