We range in ages from 19-82 and stopped by to visit ... spent 3 hours there! Gorgeous buildings. Impressively preserved and restored properties. Knowledgeable staff. We all enjoyed it. Amazing that this area is still around and has not been torn down.

The town with charm and history. We visited this town ten years ago and were enchanted then ... but it has improved! The castle, the park, the walks, the fish and chips and the historic theatre are all so lovely. Well worth a visit.

I think it means they don't have tours those days and the visitor's center and museum is not open. The grounds would be open because it is just out in the open on a regular street/neighborhood, you could walk through it. You... More
