    ... the inside. The floors are made in the nightingale floor style which creates a squeak when walked upon. The floors were made this way to prevent people from sneaking around. The walls were covered in paintings dating back over four hundred years ago. The whole interior was beautiful and we wish we were allowed to take photos!
