Site Access

Access for restricted mobility

Care should be taken when travelling from the car park due to the narrowing of the main road and pavement just below the entrance to the castle. There is a slight incline from the car park and at the entrance of the monument. From the Visitor Centre, a small ramp leads to a level path and easy access around the site. The tower is limited to walkers only and there are a mixture of grass and gravel surfaces on the site.
