  • Truly enjoyed the Castle history and the furnishings of a Victorian-Gothic-Medieval -Holy structure. All the odd shaped rooms and cubby's-back hallways.

  • While this castle may not be in pristine condition, it is definitely worth visiting and learning the history of the castle. The architecture is amazing. Please visit and know your minor admission...

  • An absolutely AMAZING experience that I highly recommend to anyone who is a history fan, or an architectural fan, it a TEA fan. They have high tea in the parlor room that is an amazing experience if you are able to reserve a place, but be warned that you will want to book it at least a week in advance if you want a spot. It is definitely worth the money. I will definitely be coming back next time I am in the area.
  • This place was really cool! The self guided your was pretty neat too. Some of the things that are shown seem to almost not belong. Random racing trophies from the 90s just don't seem to fit the narrative but it was still really cool to see! The history behind it is pretty neat too. We will definitely be back to experience the tea next time
