Spend some family time against one of our most iconic backdrops. Spot the 50-year-old carp in the moat, climb the steep towers, walk across the battlements and run in the wide-open spaces. Inspire young visitors to learn about medieval life, with the original portcullis, gun loops and medieval bread oven. The castle is surrounded by buggy-friendly paths too. In May half term, there will be storytelling for young families, longbow demonstrations and a medieval armour display. Check the website for details.
