The current restoration began in 1989 when it was incorporated into the Municipal Heritage. It was to incorporate a large centre where artistic shows could be held as well as being open to the public. In recent months, extensive remodelling of the gardens and car parks has been underway and the castle is now easily accessed. Plans are now underway to light the castle with a massive scheme of artistic lights.
The castle can be visited every day except Mondays, between 10am and 2.30pm and between 4pm and 6pm.
This castle was the setting for a TV commercial advertising a brand of lager (where they claimed football was discovered, remember ?).
