I took my 6 year old son to the castle this morning and we had a great time. And, it was free to get in - always a bonus! You are asked to make a small donation, but not in an overbearing way and the suggestion is £3.00! Inside you could pay to have a go at archery which looked like fun. There were people in medieval costume who showed us a range of armour, weapons and household items from the period. My son got to try on some chainmail, a helmet and a small piece of armour. He was also able to hold a couple of the weapons and a shield which he was really thrilled with! He got to 'milk an almond' too and sniff a range of spices. There was no charge for any of this, the people were really knowledgeable, friendly and kind. We will definately be going again.
