The history lesson is quite intresting. the grounds are well kept and you should definitely take a picture with the old trucks. The place is easily accessible by road.

The place is gorgeous and reeking of history. Maintenance however is at bare minimum which is a shame because the place has great potential to be a world class tourist attraction. Nevertheless worth a visit for picnics especially with small children. You can find a nice spot under a tree and enjoy the countryside.

This is a castle that was built by Lord Maurice Egerton of England for his mistress during the years prior to Kenya's independence from the British. It has all the features of a complete castle and is a favourite for historians and also for day camping or outdoor activities.

Long live the Castle. Played all sorts of games, listened to music, toured inside the castle, had lunch and took photos. The day was just super doper. I will surely go back anytime. The green lawns have a therapy - family can as well go for outday.

Not recommended unless you would like to see a Llama, which they have a few caged ones in the garden. The building is terribly run down and they only have one room with about 10 old artefacts. very sad.

The well trimmed lawns and the lush plains are a sight to behold...the architecture of the castle is just magnificent. Very picturesque. Llamas can be seen trotting away. The tale of an undying love for a woman that made lord Egerton build a castle to impress the lady who ends up breaking his heart forever never to be mended. All... More
