Entry to car park quite narrow especially awkward when busy. Castle is quite basic with limited things to see over several floors. Jousting display was running in grounds which made a nice diversion

Wow a great insight in to a 13th century castle, unusual in its appearance and over 4 floors. Great views from the roof! Also the heraldic window are a treat.

We went to the castle and found its history very interesting, we even climbed the 149 steps to the top and watched aeroplanes from Coningsby flying, for history buffs a must .
