This is a lovely castle well worth the time and trouble getting here especially since they have modified the front drive so vehicles can't park at the gates spoiling your picture.

A castle that you can explore extensively - from the dungeons to the highest ramparts. Great views of the countryside. Great displays inside the castle with a lot of history available on handsets.

The castle is very well preserved and has some fantastic views from the castle walls, there are a lot of original features still remaining - really worth a visit, wear comfy shoes as there are a lot of steps :-)
