  • Visited last September. And enjoyed the site and very knowledgable curator who enacted a character from the past to great effect. Nice tea shop too. A must for children to visit and be a knight or inv...  more »
  • Not sure what I was expecting as went for a photography day. The day itself was OK although little disappointed most of the models were WW2. I was hoping for some medieval or viking etc. Castle itself...  more »
  • Lesley Smith is an inspiration and visionary in bringing history back to life with a flare and sensitivity, respect. Looking forward to visiting again in 2018 at least once.  more »

  • Took my wife and youngest son for a visit, my second today (Aug 2017). Last time was in 1979, the external attributes are similar to then with the addition of the great hall and various ongoing archaeological discoveries. The staff are very helpful and friendly, with great historic knowledge spanning the longevity of this national monument owned by the Crown. Ongoing discoveries are adding the the knowledge base on a regular basis too, providing fascinating insights into great historic events. Loved returning here after so long, and will return.
  • 26 of us had a wonderful evening last night. We started with a delicious buffet. The food was lovely. Then Lesley Smith portrayed Bounaccia. As every, so professionally done. Her hard work at researching this subject fantastic.Her costume accompanied by tools of her trade enthused the men in our group. This is now becoming an annual event much enjoyed by everyone. Hope to return next year. Thankyou to all concerned.
  • Really great place to take the family. We went during a festival and saw a battle reenactment. All the reenactors were really helpful and informative about Norman culture. It was lovely
  • There isn't much here honestly short of a small area with some paintings and dresses all the remaining areas just led to dirty pits in the ground. If you live close and there's an event on could be good but don't travel far for this.
  • Lovely castle and grounds, not overly developed so plenty of things to 'see for yourself' guide was very helpful.
