The castle is a great attraction for young children with treasure hunts in the castle. The castle grounds are extensive with a very good play park and grassy surround for ball games. The cafe/restaurant is very good for tea or coffee and light snacks.

A brilliant walk up with stunning views and enough of the walls and rooms left to envisage what it must have been like in Norman Times to be defending the ground. Interesting museum gift shop and nice cafe.More
