AboutThe Castle is the centrepiece of the estate. It is a large quadrangular house with a central courtyard. Each section has a different appearance, reflecting the different architectural styles that have been employed here since building began in the 13th century.
Once inside you can see the collection of paintings, furniture, tapestries and objects d'art that fill the state rooms. Thrones and furnishings from the House of Lords are some of the more unusual items on view.

There is also en extensive selection of cycle routes on the estate, with options suitable for all cycling abilities - there is even cycle hire available and a lovely tea room to rest after your exercise.
