  • £6 one adult one child, discounts on larger family ticket. Nicely sympathetic work has been done to make the buildings safe and accessible with viewing platforms added in upper levels. Some disabled access. Toilets just outside buildings you can reenter if you keep your ticket. Nice little shop selling fairly good quality souvenirs and weaponry gorgeous the kids. Unfortunately I could find no tea. :(. Bring a picnic and the young ones will be happy running round for a good couple of hours.
  • It was closed on 31st March although the sign stated "closed for winter". Quite disappointed as it looked promising from the outside + I'm confident it's already spring! The castle has a nice path all around and a lovely view of the sea that is just few steps away.
  • A fine example of a preserved castle, good views of the town and coast. Well worth a visit. The grounds are very pleasant too.
  • Visited over the easter break and had a brilliant time. Entrance fee was reasonable and the walks and views from the castle are amazing. worth every penny.
  • Interesting and well-maintained. The video in the visitor centre was good and helped you make sense of the ruins.
