Not much of a castle left but worth a look. We climbed to the highpoint that has great views. The information centre was good. Plenty of squirrels to see. Castle is situated in a lovely part of town next to the River.

A beautiful spot, interesting history, lovely park and pathways, the staff are very personable and eager to talk about the history of the castle. Would recommend this spot as one to just take a break, have a seat, enjoy the view.

there are some very interesting displays in the C13th century gatehouse and an excellent guide book. A stroll around the site and ascent on the motte is well worth while.

Visited the Civil War re-enactment event which was very interesting and fun. It is a good venue for events similar to this and for the recent Food and Drink Festival and the Castle is well maintained.
