Fantastic value for money. Sat in the castle grounds with a picnic. Nice to see peacocks just strolling by. Loved being able to feed the lorikeets as well as going to the petting zoo. Great being able to walk up the castle ruins.

Hi Hugh, Yes access to the castle is included. Easy access with pushchair - though a little steep in places. And voucher in black and white is accepted. Lovely day out, enjoy Kim
