Visited for the first time with family from Canada. So much to do from dressing up in medieval costumes / dragons den, tile making, and learning how to ride a broomstick - great fun, to name but a few ! Café good for food also.

What a superb venue for an outdoor concert. The music and surroundings made for a very enjoyable evening.

I would advise against going to see a concert here unless you pay top whack for seats in the first few rows. We were towards the back and because of the topography no one in our party of three could see a thing. We weren't...More

We had a lovely time at the castle. It was lovely to see the vista and try to guess where scenes from Harry Potter took place. The broomstick Training was hilarious and such a laugh and was the highlight of our day.
