Usually only view-able from the stone foundation of the former castle keep, the Castle gardens are being opened to celebrate the new year. This is a rare opportunity to step inside the treasured Japanese-style gardens and enjoy a refreshing stroll through the grounds. The gardens will be open from 10am until 4pm but last admission is at 3pm, so try not to leave it too late.
