Well worth the short drive over the bridge. Grounds are beautiful and the history is very interesting. Ed, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and funny. Will definitely go back for the back stairs tour with enough time to do a river walk.

Yes, tickets can be purchased at the castle, but I would strongly suggest purchasing online prior to your visit. I've seen people turned away due to tickets being sold out.
