The staff on hand to greet are lovely,so proud and enthusiastic,willing to spend time talking and explaining rather than just pushing you through. Nice selection of souvenirs, and things to buy. It was here that I purchased my first bottle of Merlyn,(Welsh equivalent to Bailey's) I had asked about it, and the lady in the shop recommended it,it is a... More

One of the best ruined castles. Lots to see we have taken all our friends and family when they visit, and the kids love it too. Lots to explore, steps and walls to climb with the history told well. Nice little cafe too.

Lovely castle with still a lot of the structure to see and trigger the imagination of how it functioned and looked back in the day of old. The kid (7-11) loved running around and finding hidey holes. We were there for little over an hour and at £13.50 felt it was well worth the money.

It is not the biggest and doesn't have the grandest history but it is just lovely. It was the only castle we saw in which I felt I could live. Made for the most beautiful photos, even on a cloudy day.

This is one of the largest castle ruins that we have seen. There really is quite a lot to see, at different levels, and the artist's impressions in each room of what it might have looked like in its heyday really bring it to life.

Visited Raglan on 30/12/15 on the way home from Usk. Due to time constraints only spent 30 minutes looking around the site but I was very impressed. It is a 15th century palace imitation of a castle, with much of its decorative masonry still intact giving you a very good impression of how it looked before its Civil War ruination.... More

Great castle, not just a ruin. Just what a kid thinks a castle should be. Towers to climb, a moat with water in it, and a drawbridge. Plenty of places to discover and climb over for the kids, and reasonable information for adults to take in. The castle regularly holds events with re-enactors doing a variety of displays throughout the... More

Researching a book on Henry VII, who spent his childhood here, my digital camera ran out of battery. The lady at reception showed me how to use her Apple I-phone to take the pix I wanted, and emailed me the results. Thanks a lot! The castle is much better than I remember, thanks to informative notice-boards, and the views from... More

A very interesting castle and in good condition. Take a small torch with you to look in the dungeons as they are very dark.
