  • Tour of the castle: Includes the Castle Gateway, Medieval Room, Courtyard, Undercroft of the West Tower, Dining Room and the Terrace Corridor.
  • Taking a walk in the magnificent gardens.
  • Two lead statues which stand on pedestals near the castle- one is of Hermes after the original in the Vatican Collection and the other is of ‘Diana- the Huntress’.
