This is perfect if you’re a tourist, as it’s very catering. The price to get into the castle is £5 and you can have a look at the history.

Great views from the castle gardens. Ravens there too on a regular basis. The castle was closed today Saturday 22 Sept 2018, not sure why but lost loads of custom. Very busy in this area a with tourists that had specifically come to see the castle. Great views of the river and plenty of seating and gardens.

There’s not a lot left of the castle but it’s a peaceful space with great views across to the viaduct and the river.
