Lovely morning spent at this castle. Travelled on the amphibious boat, that was fun. Then spent 2 hours round the castle including re-enactment and canon firing, join in and be young at heart for the best experience. Worth the £13.50 or thereabouts entrance and boat...More

Interesting castle to visit with good museums explaining it's history. Nice trip over on a "duck" at high water, can walk there when water out ( 5 h every 12).

This is a large heritage site, over 20 acres, so there is quite a lot to see. Several small but well presented museum spaces, including a German bunker left over from the Islands occupation. One of the interesting experiences was the method of arrival on...More

A large castle got to by a long causeway or DUKW. Impressive displays and demonstration really enjoyed the ceremony of the cannon firing.

Hi, the castle is now closed until Spring 2018. You can still visit Mont Orgueil Castle in Gorey (open Friday to Monday).
