If you are interested in history, not just castles, Raglan Castle is a great place to visit. It combines the physical with a multitude of human stories. If you buy the guidebook, £4.50 , you will be able to wander around imagining how it might have been for the kitchen workers, the porters, the gentry, the damsels and the visitors.... More

My favorite castle ruins. Beautifully picturesque and romantic.Every angle of this castle is a photo opportunity. Grounds are nice without distracting from the beauty of the castle. Simply the best!

This is a brilliant castle to visit for a number of reasons. First, whilst not complete it still contains enough of the major structures that you can picture something of what it was like when it was complete. You can get to the very top of the keep for great views of the castle and surrounding area. And best of... More

We visited this beautfiul medieval castle last weekend and had great fun exploring, so much to see in the Castle and enjoying the amazing views of the countryside with swallows swooping through the ruins and grounds. A thoroughly interesting Castle for all ages and finishing off with a stroll up the lane to a cafe with good food and views.

Beautiful moated castle. A relatively well preserved/restored castle. Got there for opening time at 9.30 and were treated to a relatively deserted castle. As English Heritage members, it's a free entry. Very well worth a visit regardless of free or not. Just beautiful.

Really enjoyed the visit. Don't miss the view from the terrace of the cafe in the lovely old building next door. They did the best Welsh cakes I've tasted.

My partner and I recently enjoyed a couple of hours wander around Raglan Castle. The castle and grounds are reasonably clean and well maintained. The view from the tower is worth the climb. It was interesting to read the history of the castle and see artists impressions and old photo's. A good place to visit if you are in the... More

Best castle in Wales...lots of towers to climb, stairs to descend and a moat to avoid! Superb views (of approaching enemies) from the towers. A nice little souvenir shop and plenty of space to stop and have a picnic. Watched bats flying in and out of the ruins at twilight with the local bat watch society.

A lovely castle to walk around, the castle has a fanastic tower to take stunning pictures of the surrounding scenery. Definitely worth a visit if you like castles. The only negative point I would voice is the lack of information within the castle on the info panels.
