Delicious doesn't do this ice cream justice - it is the best i can remember tasting and I'm going back for another before heading home today. DragonFruit with freshly slain Welsh dragons should not be missed! 🍧🍦🍨

The ice cream is fantastic, right next to the castle, so good to help you cool down after climbing all those stairs.
