took our girls here in the summer, it's really educational and very interesting. Girls had great fun and you can make a day of it as the castle is situated close to a park, bowling alley, soft play and eateries. You can even feed the ducks and if you time it around the right times we get the fun fair... More

We went during October half term so there were Halloween activities on during the week. The castle is a great find! The prices are far more reasonable than other castles locally (especially Warwick Castle!) and we used a voucher cloud discount so the children all got in free. There were people dressed up all around the castle telling stories and... More

The castle its self is impressive, large and imposing on the hill when you make the climb to the top of the tower you can see for miles -... More

We all enjoyed the castle. Good displays full of interesting information and the children (aged 9 & 5) loved the 'please touch' and interactive options around the castle.

Took my daughters and granddaughters to the castle for the first time and amazed that it's in such good nick. My granddaughters dressed up in their princess dresses and that was all it took for them to believe that they really were princesses. There was a lady there dressed in a lovely dress and tiara so the kids thought she... More

It is brilliant for adults learning the history and great for kids to play the games around the castle and also try on outfits. Price to get in was reasonable and there is a small cafe in the premises... More
