  • It took just over an hour with the audio guide but worth the time , learnt loads and the lady from English Heritage was great  more »
  • It is very interesting to visit, but once one is inside the tour is also over. There is not so much to see. All beautifully prepared, just unfortunately not very much, as one might expect. The price of admission is therefore too high despite audio guide in many different languages.

  • We were disappointed to find the castle closed but we were able to park our motor home there and enjoy a walk around the perimeter in the blustery sunshine  more »

  • Great and unexpected experience! Nice preserved castle with an audio guide wich makes you feel that you are living in that period. Very warm welcome at the reception. Parking being reimbursed. Nice walk in the village to the river. And on the way to Ipswich must stop to the H8gh House Apple Farm☺
  • Free audio tour provided a fascinating and informative overview of this impressive Norman castle. Took around 2 hours to fully appreciate the building and its history, quite a few steps and a few narrow passages so check with the English Heritage help desk if you've any mobility issues.
  • Historic Castle/Norman Keep. Audio tour of all floors. Great atmosphere. Managed by English heritage
  • Nice castle only downside was very limited parking. Would recommend doing the audio tour as you go as it is very informative. picturesque views from the top of the castle and can see miles all around.
  • Absolutely love this castle and have taken many a visitor to see it.
