We loved the butterfly house. It's on the 1st floor in Hamleys (toy store). It's not too big, but worth a visit. The butterflies fly all around you and with luck (like we did) they get VERY close (had one on my nose and arm that didn't want to leave). The house is very nicely laid out. Many butterflies hatch on site. But beware: sometimes they sit on the floor. You really have to have eyes everywhere. If you have time, you should just sit on the benches and wait for a butterfly to come to you. The price is worth a visit

It was totally worth it! The tickets includes the visit to the tower and medieval dungeon guided tour! All you have to do, reach the tower at around 9:00! At the 3rd floor, you can show the booking voucher and they will give a ticket for the same! Visit the tower and get back to 1st floor, from where the medieval tour starts! The tour has fixed timings! The english tour starts at 10. So reach there by 10 and show the ticket and tour starts! Very convenient option! Totally worth it!

This was an amazing and thorough tour. We were lucky enough to have no one else sign up for the tour so my husband and I had the wonderful tour guide, Dana, to ourselves. It was really cool that she had pictures of how things used to look and how they have changed over the years to supplement the different sights.

Great tour. We were a group of twenty people, our guide picked us up at the hotel, and guide us to the Castle. She was very knowledgeable, Friendly and made this tour one to remember

Our guide Jana was very informative and accommodating.
