As one of the other reviewers commented the castle itself is well kept but sparse. On the other hand it is very conveniently situated, built as it was in the middle of a particularly attractive small city and next to a handy car park.
What made our visit was the performance of King John and his valet. They stayed in character all through their show. We felt like we got a real insight into the man himself.
When I had a particularly tricky question of the valet (about the murder of John's nephew), he insisted we move to a quieter space away from the king, so we couldn't be overheard. It made the trip worthwhile.
I think they've got Richard the Third coming soon but unfortunately we are away.
So well done actors you changed the average to the very good and memorable!
