We ended up spending much more time exploring this huge castle than we had anticipated. Very interesting location, overlooking the river on one side and the town on the other. Great fun for children. Lots of stairs if you want to see everything!

Such a well-designed castle it really demonstrates humans' ability to design and organize, and to destroy. Very impressive history and architecture.

This is a really nice castle, a great example of Norman architecture. If it is a nice day, I would take a little pick-nick in with you as there is some nice grass areas to relax. If you are into history there are lots of little facts about this place that will get encouraged to read more about it. Like... More
