Take a walk through time in this beautiful castle. I would really call it more of a home then castle. It has two sides, one for the family and other the workers. It reminds me of a simpler time. The castle is 4 stories tall. Bedrooms scattered between floors, picturesque stairway, a bathroom that takes you back to elementary days. This home was at one point converted into a school. Along the hallways are carvings of students names in the wood. I loved the game room and the dance hall on the top.

The parliament building offer free guided tours throughout the day. My family and I had planned on going on the 9:30 am tour (first tour of the day) on a Monday; unfortunately, a school group had booked that time slot so we decided to do a self-guided tour instead since we were pressed for time. We ended up being able to listen in on part of the booked tour and we enjoyed exploring the building. You are only allowed in a few areas but it's definitely worth checking out especially since it's free
