If it wasn't described as a castle you would never know! Basically it looks like a leaning wall which is ready to fall. It is difficult to walk near it without speeding up to avoid being crushed, I imagine someone has declared it safe but...More

You really do wonder how this wall has managed to stay at this alarming angle for so long. The castle was destroyed in the Civil War, so it is unlikely to collapse unexpectedly now. There is an excellent view over the town, and you can...More

The castle remains are very impressive - leaning at a crazy angle. The best part of this attraction is the surrounding park and environs. There are beautiful gardens, an old churchyard, cliff walks, and splendid views of the surrounding countryside.

We walked through the park on a sunny day. They were kept neat and tidy and had a profusion of flowers and plants. Well worth a visit.

We walked around the hilltop to the Castle ruins. The views on the way around are breathtaking, definitely worth taking in. The gardens are the first thing to greet you; perfectly manicured lawns with colourful and well maintained flowerbeds. The bushes were shaped into various...More

Lovely just to stroll around the grounds, stop for a cuppa and watch the world go by. Leisurely, beautifully kept gardens and history too.

A fenced off castle ruin at the southern edge of town overlooking the rail station but with some very well tended flower beds making for a pleasant little park. Beware if coming up from the station as there are a number of steps but no...More

We found the castle gardens beautiful and very peaceful. They are very well kept, with beautiful flowers, shrubs and trees, war memorials, dedicated benches and a lovely band stand and bridge. Inside the gardens are all that is left of the castle, the ruin, apparently,...More

Well worth a visit, how the remains of the castle is still standing at that angle is amazing. Absolutely stunning location and a beautiful picture perfect English town.

Nice walking route and a lot to see, the old castle ruins are interesting to see aswell as the old graveyard behind the church, also a nature trail for the kids and a wishing well, 100% worth a look.
