The best thing here is to go to the top of the keep for the views around the city, but then this can also be done from the Clock Tower!

Very well kept chateau/castle with lots of interesting rooms to visit. Great views from it too, and very reasonable to go in. Well worth a visit

We walked the castle walls on a windy and not so pleasant day. The views from the castle walls are wonderful,looking towards the beaches and the islands.

Very interesting place to visit if you don't have any form of disability, too many stairs with one side with no handrail or stair to walk safely.
