On a nice summers day drive to low town and park by the river and take the funicular railway (entrance opposite the bridge over the river) up the cliff into high town where there is a pleasant walk around castle terrace that culminates in castle park. The park is an old fashioned park of lawns and flowers with an ornate bandstand in the middle. Also in the park are the castle ruins - not much survives after the castle was blown up in the civil war. One tower remains and it leans at a more acute angle than the tower of Pisa. From castle park you can continue into the town centre or turn right to see the Georgian style church designed by Thomas Telford.
