  • Interesting castle with great information boards as well as additional activities for the children. Love the upstairs tudor dress up. However, you do have to pay even to just walk around.
  • Realy nice. You can dress up. And there is a place thy tell you about swords and howe to use a bow.
  • Good size for a quick trip out, space for a picnic, and a fun quiz for the kids. Great that they could try on period clothes as well.
  • Absolutely incredible, definitely not to be missed. Helpful hands on staff. Awesome views
  • Love this place, especially on a glorious,sunny Gower day. We particularly enjoy the upstairs bit with the dressing up rail in it.
