Small but worth a visit gives you an insight as to what it would of been like for prisoners during there stay there. Mainly they had a woodern bunk with a hole in the ground to use as a toilet, that was it.

Has a good collections of paintings and religious objects from the 15th century. Good lift to all floors so no stairs to climb. there are talks on most Saturdays and concerts on the roof in summer so very well worth a visit.
