We decided to pop in on our way home thinking it would be a quick visit. We were wrong, we spent a good few hours here walking round and exploring the many little extra doorways and cubby-holes. This castle has changed many times over the...More

There are fantastic views from the top of the castle towers, had a beautiful sunny day so could see for miles.

Plenty of room for the children to run around. Good history information. Plenty left to see - although you need to use your imagination. Prince Arthur married Catherine of Aragon here. Good shop and café. (Excellent cream tea!)
