  • One of the most interesting castles I've ever been to. Not very opulent or enormous, but very practical. Neat looking storage facilities surrounding the castle. Nice descriptive displays in each room. The cellars are the most interesting part of the castle for me and they are pitch black in a lot of parts. Follow the lighted arrows and don't get lost!
  • You must visit this amazing Castle. You will definitely need a full day ! It’s huge ! The gardens are magnificent. So much to see . Get there early it can get very busy . Take a tour it’s definitely worth it. If you love history you will love exploring this castle. Fabulous day out with the family.
