There is a lot to explore within the castle. Make sure you bring a torch so you can peer into lots of dark places when scaling the castle’s battlements. There is a map (in various languages) available (5 rand) when you pay your entrance fee though it will take you a few moments and a bit of effort to understand how the map and its various explanations work. I went with a small person who enjoyed climbing over the castle’s rapports but some of the other things were pretty dull. Kids will be interested to see the table that seats a hundred people and the room that was used for carrying out the torture but the rest is worth a quick glance for them. There are good views from the castle and there are a couple of dioramas that show how the castle has changed overtime and how the original castle was originally situated on the coastline! All these helps put the whole castle and its history in some sought of perspective.
