Paid extra to have a guided tour. The tour takes you through some rooms in the house that would not ordinarliy be available. Guide was very knowledgeable. This was well worth the additional cost.
The audio guide and maps are very good and you can tackle the site in any order you wish.
Café is very reasonable and has a comfortable atmosphere.

Fantastic city centre castle. Staff were very, very helpful. Signage and information well presented and way to find, and all the better just a short stroll from the centre of this beautiful city. Great additional exhibition of the History of the Welsh Army in the basement of the gift shop as well.
