  • This was an interesting visit, we managed to book in advance of our holiday so we could print out out booking confirmation as is necessary in these times. Plenty of well signed walks around the site.....  more »
  • If you are a history buff or even just a bit curious, this is a great place to visit. The annual medieval festival is amazing. There is a great restaurant which also hosts weddings. It's a beautiful location and popular with walkers and dogs. The exhibition is fascinating and informative. Definitely worth a visit!
  • Did not pay to go into the museum as we had limited time and it was very expensive this is the reason for the four star. However the grounds are stunning and love the sundial with the crown very clever. They do a number of walks here that look fantastic but again limited time for us but hopefully back another day to take part.
