We took the kids here as they love a good castle ruin! It was excellent value for money at £13.50 for a family of four.

The castle was big and it was fantastic to see a draw bridge and also the moat filled with water. What was even spectacular in the ruins is that you can go up the tower and get scenic views.

An intersting castle, bit more like a stately home in places. We went on Pirate Day without realising it, so there were lots of people doing re-enactments, stalls, and activities which our son loved but did detract from the castle itself for us. It's not very big, easy to walk around, good to be able to go down to the... More

A great castle to take the kids to see in a picturesque setting. There are lots of stair cases leading up to towers and others leading down to store rooms for them to investigate. There are also information boards detailing the castles history. I would take a picnic as there isn't a cafe on site however the farm next door... More

An excellent place to visit. Although partly a ruin, there is quite a lot left and therefore one can get a good sense of how things were originally. Signage is good and there is quite a lot to discover and scary stairs to go down into darkness. There is also a nearby farm cafe offering good snacks and cream tea... More

We visited here on one of their special medieval days and it was great fun. The kids had a treasure hunt / quiz which was princess themed for girls - much to their pleasure being princess mad. The were a few bits it was a bit hairy with young kids - steep crumbling staircases and big drops but that is... More

Making our way from N. Wales to S. Wales along picturesque coastal and country lanes we discovered amazing Welsh castles dotted along our route. From Conwy in the north to Harlech in the west and Raglan in the south. Each unique in architectural style and appearance with its respective historic tales. Raglan was no different. The last great medieval castle... More
