“What a surprise!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

I have passed this castle on many occasions and haven't bothered to go in until recently.

This castle is incredible I went in expecting a shell and it is far from this. There is so much to find and investigate, passageway after passageway hold interesting finds and then there is a museum built in too which holds a treasure trove of history.

I will certainly be visiting again!

“Superb castle and museum.”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

An excellent visit for the family especially imaginative children. The staff were pleasant and the overall experience was first class. Military museum was a nice bonus included in the reasonable ticket price.

Very interesting, especially the Royal Fusiliers musem but we went on a very cold day so although they had live music we could not stay too long

“Great day out!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Visited this castle on Easter Sunday with husband and two sons. Parking £4 for cars right by the castle. Family ticket £18 which is great value when you compare it to National Trust. They had an Easter trail for the children which was great fun and resulted in an Easter egg for each child and it was free!! Really nice castle, lots to see, beautiful views from the towers. Will definitely be visiting again.
