There isn't much left of it. 3 towers, one massive courtyard and some scarce information about the castle itself. From the highest tower you can see as far as the sea and the motorway bridge.

Quite unhappy about this visit. A bit expensive to go in and I found it was totally unsuitable for families as some of the steps are quite dangerous and also there are no facilities for example there are no toilet facilities in the castle whatsoever...More

We saw dogs inside on our visit....not sure if they would be allowed inside the rooms though. Lots of lovely walks for them in the grounds :)

There is a free car park just inside the grounds, next to the castle and children's park area.
