I knew the castle history but not that there was the Georgian gaol to see plus one of our Magna Carta documents. We walked the settlements first, bit spooky to see the grave stones of the hangman victims. Great views. Then the very informative Magna...More

Amazing castle with fantastic views & knowledgable staff! The wall walk was fantastic & could see for miles! Everyone I spoke to was outgoing, friendly & knowledgable. I especially liked the wall walk for the epic views and walking up in the turrets!
