Signage on the way to the castle was pretty sparce. Grounds close at 5pm but you must be checked in by 4. You definately need more then 1 hour to tour everything. Audio tour was FANTASTIC and a definate must have. The outside grounds were well maintained and breathtaking. If you go towards the closing time and the grounds are booked for an event expect to be throughly bothered with people moving tables and setting up although the castle is still open to normal tourist activity. The numbering system if you went in order makes no sense so just go where you please and listen to the audio tour based on location on numbers on the map. there is so much intricate detail the place is just beyond explination. Especially since everything could have been done in this day and age. The tower tour is narrow but well worth it. The castle itself gets pretty hot in the smaller stairwells and big fans are only in the main hallways. So it would get a bit hot and sticky. I love the hidden rooms and staircases. This place was a must see.
