It has a romantic feel to it - I often see it from the train and at night it looks very gothic. To be honest, there's not that much to see but kids seem to enjoy running around the grounds and entrenched defences. This was a proper castle once but the roundheads probably put paid to that. Corfe castle is better. Fairly pricy for what's on offer, but if you are in Sherborne why not? The new Sherborne 'castle' (more a stately home) is less romantic but has much more to see.
