I've been here several times before and I went recently with my father. I wanted to show him something interesting and with historic significance near Maidstone, so this was the perfect choice. It was great and as good as I remembered it.
The castle is truly stunning and epitomizes the fairy-tale caste. The grounds are very well looked after and fit the surroundings perfectly. The museum inside the castle is very interesting and summarizes the history of the castle into a pleasant and effortless tour.
The only sign that I feel could be improved is the ticket options. £21 for an adult is a bit steep, but it does include year-round admission. For those of us like me who live exactly, that's a bargain and it's great, but for those who visit just the once, it would be nice to have the option of a cheaper admission ticket.More
