Went on Saturday 20th when there was a medieval 3 day event on so lots of folk dressed as knights or maidens and different events on like archery, jousting and battle re-enactments - quite impressive plus lots of families there and all kids seemed like they were having a ball.
Just explored castle - didn't use audio guide but that was our choice. Happy just to wander about and take in sights and they were quite some sights. Castle is XL large and then some. Yes it's been reconstructed several times but it is still impressive. Plus, interesting sculptures in grounds.The fact we went when place was mobbed, tours everywhere and sometimes getting in road AND still really enjoyed it says a lot
I think if I had went as a kid I may have exploded More
