An enchanting day out for the whole family. From the minute you walk through the entrance you are warped into a medieval experience from the staff who add to the authenticity in their medieval costumes and the opportunity to dress up yourself and be a queen or knight for the day. For the kids (or the big kids) you can participate in a treasure hunt & enjoy a little gift for participating. Not only a bit of fun but educational for the whole family with plenty of information on medieval weaponry, religion, lifestyle and the dreaded dungeon.
After walking around the castle you are sure to work up an appetite & the onsite Castle Inn Cafe provides a great menu to satisfy. Indulge in the castle lambshanks or the delightful and hearty German sausage platter (for 2) or a selection of cakes and coffee of something simple is more to the liking.
Plenty of photo opportunities, friendly staff, gift shop and overall a great day out for the whole family.
