Last came here on a school trip in the 1970s. Then you could clamber around the moat and had (generally) unrestricted access to the ruins. A pleasant surprise to find you still can: the only deference to modern coddling is the obligatory notice stating the blindingly obvious, viz. that this is an ancient monument and so the surfaces might not be quite as bouncy as the floor of a toddlers’ nursery. Helpful, succinct display boards are placed discretely at key locations. Pleasant café too (looks modern) and a gift shop stocked with the usual knights and chivalry stuff. Well done English Heritage.
