“History but interesting”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

A great place to take the kids makes history interesting for them. If you visit in the summer as we did you can get a great view of the Dolphins from the top as they play in the river. A castle to fire a childs imagination AND It's FREE!

“a pefrect piece of history - not to be missed”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

i love this castle, from the outside you can see the big hole blasted in the side of it from the war days - WOW ! i took my daughter here tons when she was young, took my nephew here when he was 6 & he went around telling everyone about it. lots to see inside,including the cannons they even sell souveigners that arent extortinate, a cannon pencil sharpener is only £1.50 & they sell nice stones etc very cheaply when normally these type of places charge the earth. i would definitely go here again.
