We had read that the castle is open from 10am. We got there about 10:30am and it was locked up and not a sole was around.
We decided to look at gets we could. It is a magical place even though we could only see through the locked gates. We did walk around the castle amongst the mud which was fun.
We just be the tour buses as they arrived after us. So all our photos are just us and the castle. 10 minutes later about 3 tour buses turned up and still the castle gates remained locked.
I'm glad we got to see the castle before the crowds.
