The challenge is parking as the parking spaces around the castle are... More

We visited the castle in the late afternoon, and it was a great time. We did not opt for the tour that took you into the keep but the visit was just as good. The grounds are beautiful and there are lots of information boards all over to help give you an understanding without the guided tour. We left the... More

We visited the castle one morning and found it to be both interesting and informative. The grounds are as pleasant as the castle itself. There is a river winding through the property and a bridge between the castle and the church that is an excellent place for photos.
