What a place! It belongs to the birds now. Every time you look up, they're swooping and soaring and watching you. It's ancient and hard. You are enclosed, cut off [protected?] and there are no long views except up (with the birds). The stones are...More

Really worth doing. The views are wonderful and it's fun to see the village from so high. Good exhibits in each of the towers.

Amazing medieval place with long history. Its worth to take the walk on the old walls and see the city from different angle. Plenty of people in the main season but still very pleasant.

Really enjoyed it, reasonably priced, gives you a good view of the city. Beware of the uneven and sometimes slippery surface underfoot if you have older members of the family in your party. Would recommend it , though quite hot in the intense July sun!

Probably not suitable with a buggy but providing the little ones can climb steps they will love it. Make sure you go down to the wetlands beyond the wall and watch the otters
