We visited on a weekend away, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Would defo recommend it as a place to visit, you also get 15% of the castle tickets with your receipt from the jail which we also visited

Great fun, loads of information. We used the audio headsets but also spoke to the role playing staff. Very enjoyable. The stairs will probably be too steep for anyone with mobility issues. Also if you attend you can then use your receipt to get 20% off admission to the castle.

We found this attraction very interesting. It shows how different things were back then. We spent a couple of hours here and thought it was good value. Keep your ticket if you want to visit the castle as you will get 20% off admission.
