See much to see and do and I wasn't expecting any of it. Very interactive for small children with medieval games and drawers to pull out etc Helpful guides and a good viewpoint from the tower.

We visited here late one afternoon as we were staying in Guines. It was an inexpensive admission fee. Think we paid €24 for 2 adults, 1 teen and 4 children. We were the only visitors at the time, the kids thought it would be boring...More
