Visited over the 2014 NYMR War Weekend events, free entry to castle, just as well as not much to see, brief history on some boards to read, ( had already read on the internet ), apart from the view from the top nothing else to see. Small shed / shop just inside entrance.

Great castle on the edge of the shopping area, bigger than we expected. Large area for the kids to explore. Good gift shop selling souvenirs and ice cream with friendly staff
