I have been to the castle too many times to count but every time I drive through the gatehouse archway I get that same old thrill and yesterday was no exception. It was so good to be back!
It wasn't very busy at all. I only saw three families while I was there, but just my luck that I'd taught the children from one of these families and, as they aren't that well behaved, my heart sank a little when I saw them. To my relief they informed me, at the top of their voices, that they were sick so couldn't come close! I have no idea what they were doing there in that case but the ticket man heard them and I saw him walk over to talk to the parents. Anyway, considering there were so few people there I didn't manage many photos without any of them in shot so here are the few people free photos I took.
This first one is taken from the car park, looking over the western moat.
