You must not drive over or beyond the moat bridge under any circumstances. Vehicles must not exceed 5 mph when on the premises, including in the car park.
  11. Access to site is between 9:30 am and 11 pm. Overnight access is only in the event of an emergency. Please ensure your travel arrangements will allow you to reach the castle during that time.
