We visited in November when parts of the castle were not open. As such we felt the entry price was a little steep. The Clive of India exhibition is excellent, especially if you like swords and scimitars, and the dining room stupendous. After that it's mostly below ground/below stairs: kitchens, sculleries and other murky places which, as another reviewer has noted, could do with better lighting. If you were to study the artefacts, soak up the atmosphere, and take in the splendid views and gardens, you could spend a good half day here. But there's a dickens of a lot we can't visit. What goes on in the second and third floor rooms of the main castle? Why can't we have at least a peep in there?
