Fabulous site and very interesting to visit. The guided tour was well worth the money and our guide was knowledgeable and interesting. However much of the information presented in the film show and additional exhibits was quite superficial and limited which was disappointing. Overall a good experience.

Can't believe it's not number 1 attraction. Helpful staff, beautiful views from the top of the keep and the castle appartments are fascinating and beautifully decorated. The soldier exhibition, Firing Line, inside was fascinating. Really enjoyed wandering around the wartime tunnels too :-)

The grounds are pretty stunning, but the information presented about the castle could use some improvement.

Well firstly let's say it looks great. The exterior looks great, the inside not so much. The audio is where it gets boring, the castle did'nt really do much throughout history and my favorite part was the cheese samples I ate.

Visiting the inside of the house is quite surprising. The rooms are varied, full of colours and art. The library is wonderful and well kept.
The Main tower offers a astounding view all around. Since the Castle is at the end of Main street, I strongly reccomend it
