We hadn't realised until buying a ticket that this is now an art gallery, within an old castle. We were warned before handing over our money, so I suspect this happens a lot! It's beautifully finished inside, and a refreshing change from the rest of...More

It was OK but the cast iron sculpture was all a bit samey. No great views of teh city which is what I expected and thought the signage suggested.
