... use. It is now a museum with Viking tools, weapons, and coins on display. Of special interest (to this British history lover) was that both King Henry II (Eleanor of Aquitaine) and his son John, (Magna Carta) on separate occasions, had visited the tower in the twelfth century. Fascinating family. Henry was the first king of England as we know it. After climbing the tower, (you are kidding me, right?) and exploring the Waterford ...

We took a jaunt around the wider gardens, including the poison garden which is filled with various poisonous plants some are even covered up so you can't touch them.
