The views from high in the tower ,s are quite spectacular. You can walk the Ramparts and step high up to the top of the towers.
The flight of the eagles is not to be missed. They are absolutely wonderful. After the display you can wander along the path outside the castle walls to take a look at the bird in the mews. They are stunning the bird above and below is a sea eagle.

Not for the faint hearted, dating back to 1345, the castle dungeons was a miserable, festering and agonising home to many a poor victim. Live actors take on the role to bring the horrific past back to life. This part of the castle is not for the faint hearted.
Stepping back into the time of the plaque, and to the land of witch craft. With scary treats around every corner enter at your own risk !
The torture chamber gave us a big of a giggle, especially when the willy chopper came out. They would come in useful in these days for certain people who defiantly need it chopping off and a health warning displayed as Aaron suggested. Must admit Aaron had us in stitches with his ideas.
The Castle State rooms are magnificent. The Great Hall is filled with Armour and some wonderful treasures. It is a great place to explore history. The State rooms bring the past to life with the wax dummies which look ever so real. The Henry the eight display were he stands with his wives is quite spectacular.
The peacock garden is a not to be missed with many peacocks wandering about, even the bushes are cut in the shape of the beautiful birds. Above and below are the lovely pictures of this magical creatures.
