Get a guide and just enjoy.
There is so much to see and be sure to climb the tower.
The architecture is amazing and need someone whom know their thing.

Should be on your must see list. Entry to the cathedral and courtyard are free and well worth the short climb.

Paid for the audio gadget tour. Mine didn’t work properly, so I had to figure it out manually, which proved challenging. Otherwise it was well worth a visit. The tombs and the tower were highlights.

A truly superb site its absolutely massive and the views over the river and city from the top are an absolute must see! One of the best looked after and largest castles I have come across the cathedral on site is also a must see!

Unfortunately for us a lot of the things we wanted to visit were shut down for maintenance. But what was open we saw and it was very good.
