The restoration project was started in 2011 with the aim to create new, sustainable uses for the 900-year-old, grade I-listed building.
The historic venue has gained a range of conference and event facilities which will open in the early summer, the largest of which is a marquee for up to 120 guests on circular tables, or 200 theatre-style. Smaller rooms inside the castle can seat from 20 to 60 guests. All of the meetings rooms offer A/V facilities and free wi-fi, and many have access to kitchen facilities.
The redevelopment of the castle also included the fitting of a floor-to-ceiling glass restaurant with views over the river, and a re-creation of the paths and lawns outside the venue.
