Had a great day and nice place for a picnic although there is a cafe around the corner. The shop was reasonable priced too.

Lovely day out visiting this castle. Could do with a café / restaurant on site, however there is a lovely tea room just down the lane.

Excellent specimen of castle with many features still present. Good value for money and a couple of hours well spent. It is unique with its French influences and I would highly recommend a visit. As a bonus when we went there was a birds nest in one of the towers stairs and we got to observe the baby birds being... More

This is probably my favourite of the South Wales Cadw sites. An impressive castle with fantastic kerb appeal. Love to wander through the ruins, round the moat, and up the tower. There are great areas around the castle to just bring a blanket and enjoy a picnic in the shadow of this medieval marvel. Can't argue with those that say... More

It cost £ 4.00 entrance fee but there is not really much more to see than what you can see from the outside I don't think unless you want to stay and visit the coffee shop which looked lovely.

One of the last midieval castles built in England. Has an imposing great tower and South Gate. Castle and fortifications are reasonably well preserved but are lacking in any comprehensive historical account or descriptions like many other sites e.g.Caernarfin.

If you are a member of English Heritage then the entrance fee for this castle is half-price. We bought the guide book so we could learn about the history and understand what each room was. Without it there was very limited information and it does add to your visit if you purchase one. There is plenty to explore and the... More

Stunning castle. Entrance fee is not too expensive. There is a lot to see, up and down spiral stairs, towers with fantastic views, beautiful windows, exhibitions. One of the best ruins I've seen. I was a bit let down by the toilets which are situated away from the castle, but you could smell them 10 feet away. They were dreadful... More

Kids will love this place - plenty of places to explore. My only gripe is that it really needs an audio tour to enhance the experience
