Amazing castle ruins & stunning location. Also has the added G.O.T factor if you are fan. Only cost £5.50 for adult, so good value. Parking free but not loads available. Given nice informative map/leaflet on arrival. Recommended.
Been here many times. With mum who has an electric mobility scooter. She is able to walk with assistance so could access most of the beautiful ruins. Very friendly staff. Breathtaking views. Couldn't visit over the bank holiday weekend due to droves of visitors arriving on coaches probably due to the Game of Thrones malarkey. One of my favourite places in the world.
