Nice views of city but inside castle not worth it. Didn’t do cave tours as more money. You can get in without buying a ticket if you just walk in

We have just been on the cave tour and it was very good. Our guide Mark was very informative and entertaining. Go before it's too late as the castle is closing for two years.
