The Ballroom is the largest room in the Castle and here can see works of art by Landseer and Carl Haag , silver statues by Sir Joseph Edgar Boehm, Minton China and artefacts belonging to Kings and Queens throughout history.
Your tour guide will also show you some of the wonderful architecture of the Castle - the detailed stone panels dressing the exterior of the Castle, the beautiful hand painted ceiling and the intricate wood carvings on the staircase in the Ballroom.
