  Cherry blossom in castle gardens

I always warn visitors that the castle wall is all that remains of the original fortification , don't expect something matching Warwick or Caernarfon!! However what it does have is the first ever museum and gallery that was open to the general public . It was created in the Victorian era and is still going strong, owning some lovely art and craft and hosting regular exhibitions. Currently the ground floor has a Robin Hood exhibit relating to the Russell Crowe film.
The grounds are lovely especially in Spring, the cafe and terrace is great. A ticket for the castle also entitles you to visit the Brewhouse museum below it's walls.

Directions: Near Maid Marion Way
