Booked the guided tour which included the glider loft. Our guide Alex from Yorkshire was very knowledgable with some great ‘test’ questions to keep us on our toes. Well worth paying for the tour as it gave an incite into the history of the castle....More

I don’t know as we don’t have a dog, however if you telephone the castle, the tour guides speak good English in the gift shop, where you get your tour tickets.
