This is a must, especially( or only in the summer). Feel history and visit the old prison cells. The boat trip is fab!

The boat trip out to the island is a great activity on it's own. The fortress is a open air and great for kids and adults. There are some facilities there, but also great if you want to pack your own picnic. The views of...More
