Remains of what was effectively a cross over between a defensive castle and a show off palace. Damaged beyond repair by the republicans (sorry parliamentarians) after civil war when the then owners backed the wrong team and the insides stripped for Badminton House in Gloucestershire. If you've got a bit of imagination it's a good place to visit for old... More

This castle was great fun to visit, we spent two very pleasant hours prowling the dungeons and towers. There is quite a bit of interpretive material to read, the moat was great, there is a nice gift shop and a pretty good restaurant nearby, well worth the visit.

Reglan is very well preserved with easy access from the main roads. The garden and the castle are very well maintained. The staff are extremely courteous and helpful. There is a small café near the car park (parking is free) and it is well worth a visit.

Beautiful example of English history. peaceful and stunning. Dogs allowed into grounds on leads which was good for us. Good value for money.(about £5 per person- free car parking)

Raglan as one of the last castles to be built is well worth a visit, pity so damaged by Parliamentarians but that is history....the Cadw staff here were extremely helpful too.

Visited with our little dog who was made very welcome. He just couldn't go up the towers and had to be kept on his lead but this is only to be expected and was necessary for his safety too. Lots of great views, turrets to climb, dungeons to go down and the moat to walk around. Plenty of places to... More

Excellent. Atmospheric. Great for exploring; hidden nooks and stairs to climb with lots of good information boards. Good value for money. I would imagine children would love it.

Fantastic castle, loads to explore. The boys loved it, and you are able to climb turrets for great views and visit dungeons for eerie atmosphere. Very good value for money at £13 for a family ticket and we spent about 2 hours there.

We visited Raglan Castle on a very wet & windy day and we found we had the Castle to ourselves! We took two of our children (14 & 11) who both found the Castle fun to explore with plenty of staircases and little rooms to hunt out and towers to climb. We stayed for a little over an hour, reading... More
