Loved meeting the animals, learned loads on the history and way of life at the castle, scoffed the tasty cake and enjoyed remembering all the toys I'd forgotten about in the toy museum. The 'Haunted House' provided an added bit of fun too!

We visit the Castle at least once a year. We went on Saturday the 15th. And this year it was very obvious that a lot of work has gone into putting new displays and buildings on the site and new timbers for the walls. The...More
