The castle is open to the public from the first Saturday in April until
the second Sunday in October each year. (Apart from the months of July
& August it is usually closed on Fridays).
Jail is also worth a visit to see what life was like in an

the 2nd heaviest ring of bells in the world. (Open daily from
mid May until the end of September) Spectacular views can be obtained
