Must see. We walked around the castle and ‘Royal Roads’ University’. Beautiful garden around the castle and felt very relaxed coming out of there.

My family took a short detour here while heading back to Sidney. There's paid visitor parking near the rear of the castle. The castle itself was very impressive, with the grounds beautifully maintained. Fantastic opportunity for some great photos. There was a wedding at the...More
