The castle itself is packed full of historical artifacts, displays and curiosities - it even has a legendary smuggler's tunnel, located deep in the dungeon.


Victorian History, and more...

Life-size displays, dioramas and models will teach you about Victorian life in the household, as well as the history of the castle through the ages. It was used as a home for wounded Army Officers during the First World War, and during the Second World War it was the headquarters for operation P.L.U.T.O. (Pipe-Line-Under-The-Ocean)!


A Museum of Curiosities

Explore the castle's incredible collection of curiosities, where there's something weird and wonderful around every corner - whether it's a museum of vaccum cleaners, a vintage dairy parlour, working robots, antique fortune-telling machines, or a giant model railway...
