We bought an English Heritage Visitors Pass and so we had free admission here. Park in the main car park or at Abbey Fields. Nice walk from the fields. It was a cool windy day that hampered our visit a bit. The towers were closed...More

This castle tells the story of Robert Dudley which is incredibly interesting! There is an exhibition full of information about him and Elizabeth I in the gate keepers home. The stables have been converted into tea rooms but the rest of the castle is in...More
