Make sure you arrive in time for the guided tour. We were guided by Guernseyman Fred whose talk was fascinating and very warm.

Visited this on our last day and were pleasantly surprised. While access for an older person isn't always easy, there were plenty of seats and the gardens were a wonderful discovery. Well done!

We had a good few hours here. Made a point of seeing (and hearing!) the noonday cannon. This was followed by a living history enactment of the life of Lord Saumerez. Very well done, with audience participation. 😉

First stop from my first cruise ever. There is rain and it was a bumpy ride from the ship but the castle has a very nice view and and it was worth the trip. We also enjoyed a very good restaurant near by.
