    Whilst the castle itself has been reduced to ruins the park it is located in makes for a wonderful scenic walk and still presents an idea of the scale of the castle grounds. The on-site national history museam is also worth a visit with extensive information on the local area and a number of exibits to see. Ideally visit in spring to catch the cherry blossoms.
