What's not to like about recreated pitched battles in armour and with real canon and arrows? The castle itself was interesting, but challenging for those with less mobility. The tea room / cafeteria was busy, but we had a nice cup of coffee. Priced as you would expect for tourists, the many exhibits and re-enactments were utterly fascinating and made... More

Was fantastic!! Beautiful grounds and scenery with historical value. It was reasonable and there was no time limit on your stay. You were free to roam and explore at your leisure. They had a lovely cafeteria. Everyone was personable and friendly.

There was a lot of steps inside the castle but it was worth it! The church in the grounds is charming and everyone was very informative.

Went to the castle when visiting nearby. It did seem expensive to get in but compared to some theme parks, not too bad. They have different tariffs to allow access to parts of the castle which was confusing at first but soon got to grips with that. If you do tax relief you get some money back to spend in... More

Beautiful gardens and easy, flexible transport around the hilly terrain for those less mobile. The knowledge given by friendly volunteers in the castle. There are lots of steps to negotiate in the castle but it's well worth it if you can manage them. The views from the heights are spectacular.

This stunning castle combines the old and the new. You can tour the older part of the castle and read about what life was like long ago. They have a few displays of what rooms looked like. You can also tour the newer part with priceless artwork, ornate decor and historical artifacts. The more tickets you buy the more rooms... More
