  • Fantastic. Great experience. The Audio Guide gave very good information, although, personally, I'm not a fan of the character role plays. Being an English Heritage member makes it even better, with no entry fee.
  • Fantastic day out with granddaughter. Fabulous castle, best falconry display ever and a good king bad king game which kept the youngsters riveted. Well done English Heritage.
