Quite a nice attraction in a small town. Not a big one. But makes you feel closer to the history of the place. A good start for long walk in the near park

Was a lovely castle with very interesting information, could even go right out onto the top of the castle and look down at the sights below and surrounding.

Took our luncheon stop here on a mystery coach tour and spent a pleasant hour or so picnicking and wandering the grounds of this fascinating castle. The mound (motte) was covered with thousands of daffodils in bloom. We didn't have time to take a gatehouse tour but that is something which is definitely 'on the list' for the future when... More

Lovely walk round here with the other half. Lots of stones, lots of history, well maintained. Worth an hour of your time.

Went on a short tour of the castle to remind me of my childhood when I used to go regularly. Nothing seems to have changed from 40 years ago. Well kept lawns and buildings. Dont think you need too long there but a walk around the park and river even in February was refreshing and memory provoking
