Wonderful castle - the history of the castle is very well presented through out the grounds. It was really informative and enjoyable to wander around reading what formed the castle and the families and battles involved. Very educational but inan innovative way.

Great history facts posted throughout the grounds, definitely take time to read through them. Some of the steps leading up to the towers may be a bit much for little ones. Great time, awesome history, definitely worth a visit

I'm hoping to see the castle, but planning on arriving on the ferry with a backpack, and leaving by train. Is there anywhere to leave my backpack while I see the castle?

Hi Carolyn, yes, we have a casket in our video room that we lock backpacks into all you need to do is ask the shop staff as you pay for your ticket if you can lock your backpack in there. Hope you enjoy your visit Jon
