Adjacent to the museum, this mansion has been converted into city hall facilities. Surrounded by charming grounds, it makes for a nice stroll from the town centre.

We attended the wedding of a cousin recently in the civic room of the town hall. Plenty of seating available in the wood pannelled hall with an impressive stained glass window as a backdrop.

The castle itself is now the Town Hall so you can't go inside. The building is more of a huge country house than a castle but it does have crenellations and small towers. You can walk round the formal gardens at the front and visit...More
