We only went to Mountfitchet Castle because it was next to the Toy Museum, but it turned out to be huge fun and really complemented its neighbour.
It's not a castle in the sense of lots of massive walls , indeed there's barely anything left of the original structure. Instead there's lots of recreation of the homes and buildings of a medieval castle. Plenty to wander around and poke your nose into. The chickens and goats are fun, and there's a nice café too.
Don't think of taking your elderly granny by the way, it's way too steep up the path. Brilliant for kids though.
