Hamish visited in July 2008. He, and we, enjoyed the visit – but he had to miss the wall walk. He was recovering from a second cruciate ligament operation and so was excused stairs. The way up to the wall walk was via a steep and narrow spiral staircase from the shop. The way back was pointed out to us – this was via an open tread wooden staircase. We decided use this and carried Hamish to the first landing where a local museum is located (above the shop and information area). We then took it in turns to look around the museum and wall. Hamish enjoyed a rest in the museum … twice! Views from the wall walk are good. The audio tour is interesting and has options to select for more information or for a youthful perspective. As ever, English Heritage’s information was interesting and informative. Their people were helpful and polite. Even the other visitors were interesting – we had chats with several other dog people including another Airedale family (she, the Airedale, made it clear Hamish should keep his distance!). Hamish had a short walk in the lower court (just outside the castle) and there’s opportunity to link up with longer walks if desired.
