Is there much to look at inside the castle? Are there many displays like how people lived, room displays etc? Just been to Gorey castle it was fascinating how it was built but not much to do in bad weather so we were a bit disappointed.
sorry mate didn't go I the castle , but I said that In my report drove bye on a tour coach but it looked amazing from the outset
I agree with the other answers. If you are looking for rooms full of furniture etc. you will be disappointed but the position and views are great and there is room for kids to stretch their legs. Try and time your visit with the Master Gunner's firing of the canon. Interesting, entertaing and LOUD
There are a couple of museum displays , but it didn't take me very long to go around them . However with kids you could take longer as one of them shows how the soldiers lived.
There are lots of rooms and nooks and crannies to explore and a climb up to the lookout.
Although the weather is better in jersey there is not much to do however it is quite historic. There are spectacular castles such as Leeds Castle or Hever or Arundel castle in the U.K. And then there are fascinating and historic realms. This is the latter and if you are in jersey have a look.
You can go into the officers' living quarters and also see military armoury and other historical pieces. The also do live musket and cannon firing displays regularly through the day which is pretty impressive.
We were in a group of 6 adults and four children between 5 and 11. it would not make the top 5 list of the most interesting castles I have visited but it was very well presented and an interesting insight of the difficulties the islanders experienced during the war. - the children absolutely loved the experience - they were all given questionnaires of things to recognise and tick off. We all enjoyed the experience.
