A rather small museum in a lovely old castle. For those with a taste for the gruesome, there is a skeleton hanging in a gibbet

Very interesting and informative. Herb garden good along with the audio section in the ladies' tower which gave an insight into two lady prisoner's lives.

The gentleman on duty on Sunday 17th June made this visit a real pleasure. His knowledge and obvious interest in the building and it's history, enhanced our tour. There isn't a huge amount to see or do, but worth every penny of the £4 entrance...More

A very interesting museum which clearly charts its different incarnations over hundreds of years. Superb views of the estuary can be seen fron the tower top.

Ypres tower was smaller than we expected, but was packed with historical information about the castle and town. Some interesting items on display and excellent views out towards the coast!

A small museum in a historical setting with lots of corners to explore and a wealth of interesting history, from ship wrecks to the origins of Little Bo Beep. Very manageable in a short space of time.
