Never visited before, interesting piece of local history. Pretty setting. Kids enjoyed building a copy of keep in wooden blocks. I don't think you'd travel far and wide to come here. We were probably there for 60 to 90 minutes

Visited with our grandson who enjoyed the freedom to run around and climb the walls. Staff are always kind and helpful and the castle is always interesting.
