Loved this castle (bit hooked on them really). The views are stunning and you can feel the history of it. There are many steps so if you are less mobile perhaps not the place for you. Hidden treasures worth looking for - saying no more....More

Fantastic castle. Views from the roof are excellent. Lots of rooms to investigate and the explanatory film is well worth watching prior to looking around to understand how the castle developed. There is a cafe within the castle.

A large castle with a lot of rooms! Many passages and stairs to climb - right up to the roof (which offers great views of Jersey). It also has a small cafe (with extra seating downstairs). There’s also toilets throughout the castle, and a small...More
