Lovey castle but to be honest no more so than many others.

However our entry fee was over £80 for two adults and two children under 7. Thats ludicrous and frankly terrible value for money. Yes you can go back for free within a year but why not offer a cheaper family ticket rate like most attractions?

Nice but definitely not worth the entry fee Im afraid.

We live in Kent and visit the castle regularly. The grounds are maintained to an exemplary standard and the whole experience is wonderful. Entrance fees are high but worth every single penny. (Tickets give 365 days access so the fee becomes instantly more palatable for us "locals"). I am pleased to say that the management of the governing trust have implemented photo ID for ticket holders, as I have been made aware several times that imposters have got free access to the castle by 'borrowing' tickets.

Make sure the weather forecast is good and go visit! You will not be disappointed!

Although it was December, the grounds were still beautiful. It's about a 10 minute walk from the entrance gate to the castle. Many ducks, birds, swans, geese. They encourage you to purchase food to feed them, however, I'm not sure that's a good idea as they start to follow people who do not have food for them and they can get aggressive. There are rooms and cottages that you can rent. There is a variety of places to purchase food. The maze was great and you exit via the grotto. There is a medieval themed children's play area as well as birds of prey.

Enjoyed our visit in December. The Christmas market was nice, the winter trail a lovely walk, the food good , and the gift shop interesting. Maze fun to meander thru and gatehouse exhibition documenting the 900 year history very informative.from Norman stronghold, to property of Eleanor of Castile to home of Hon. Olive, Lady B, the castle has gone thru many transitions. Audio Guide is a must. I enjoyed the beauty of the castle and the husband enjoyed the bird exhibitions and the dog collar museum bit. Worth the price of admission.

Visited here on 29th December and it was nice weather however it’s been raining a lot so consequently probably should have taken wellies. The maze paths were unpassable in places and I was surprised it was still open. There were a lot of wet feet!

Enjoyed the bird display and had an enjoyable day. We visit a lot as we are local, our friends are not and felt overcharged for the annual ticket since they won’t use it again but otherwise a good day out to blow the cobwebs away
