Beautiful castle, made better by the Tudor enactment. Well worth a visit, our kids had a great trip as well as us. The castle is beautiful, and has great views of the surrounding areas from the tower tops. Some of the staircases may make the more nervous feel a bit uncomfortable though.

We went to that castle on the Tuesday after the bank holiday. This site stands out from a lot of other castkesites as you are allowed to explore all areas is the castle such as the wine cellars and pantrys to the towers whereas other places don't let you. There are information rooms that give you a background to the... More

Raglan is a spectacular castle with great views of the surrounding area. Plenty of space and grass areas for a picnic and for the kids to run around. The downsides are the toilets, which I know there are tenders out at the moment to replace the toilet block, so fair enough. It also lacks sufficient access to the cafe which... More

What a great place! Reasonable entry prices. So much going on. Such great entertainment. Lots of fun. Downsides were the toilets - only two ladies toilets!!! And v smelly. Also the Cafe is quite a walk away.

We had a great day out here today for the tudor weekend. The castle itself is well worth visiting plus dogs are allowed. The only downfall is the lack of bins

Raglan Castle is one of the last true castles to be built in Wales. During the English Civil War in 1646, Raglan Castle was besieged by parliamentarian forces led by Sir Thomas Fairfax. As a result of the siege, the castle was heavily damaged and thus began a period of disrepair. It is a wonderful place to visit and seldom... More

We've driven past Raglan Castle a couple of times and admired it, so finally made the time to stop on the way back from our Mon & Brec canal holiday. Helped by a beautiful blue skied day we found the castle enchanting and enjoyed exploring both the inside and outside of the castle. Although they are ruins there is still... More

The ruins have been restored to some extent and the site is well worth the visit. The history of the castle is facinating. As an additional element to our visit, we met another couple of foreigners and it was interesting to find a Yank, a Frenchie, a Kiwi and an Aussi all together visiting a site in Wales!
