They have done their best with this castle. Its good for one hour visit plus the tea rooms. If you want to see a better castle go to Colchester, its far better or Framingham.

We visited the museum and paid. We were not informed that 3 school parties were on the loose literally. Every room we went into they were there. Displays haven’t changed in years . Not worth the money I’m afraid
