Raglan Castle was one of our favorite places on a 10-day driving tour of England and Wales. We began the day by visiting Chepstow Castle, then drove to Tintern Abbey, then took the beautiful drive through the Wye River Valley, and then drove to Raglan Castle. We enjoyed all three sites tremendously, and Raglan was a great one to end... More

This is a wonderful Castle, it has so much to explore and see and is perfect as an educational or cultural visit, or a relaxing day out. We took a picnic and sat on the grass by the Castle Wall, it was private and peaceful, very romantic if you're out as a couple! The towers have incredible views over the... More

We visited Raglan Castle one morning. The entry price is very fair and there is plenty to see. If you have an interest in castles then this is a MUST The whole family loved it, with towers to climb and moats to walk round everyone was happy.

An unusual layout for a castle but the tower and moat to the left of the main gate is impressive and there are some lovely views from the top. Our 4 year old boy loved exploring the winding stairs, the dark & echoing cellars and the towers. Definitely pop in for a visit if passing by.

Raglan castle seems like THE place to live centuries ago. Little private apartments, large wine cellars, a courtyard with nice fountain and a chapel on the side, incredible fortifications in case of danger. It wasn't very interactive like other castles I have been to. Very basic maps and short descriptions about what has been where, but it seemed plenty and... More

We were very lucky to visit on a sunny day and all I can say is the views were breathtaking! We could see the tops of the hills covered in snow. Amazing. You can climb to the top of two towers. As for the castle, it is a lovely place to take the family (there were a lot of children... More

Enjoyed a visit to Raglan castle with my family. Something for everyone to enjoy. Dark cellars & intact staircases that take you up the towers. Information boards around the castle give you an imagination of how it may of been. Beautifully located in Monmouthshire. Well worth a visit & the cost is low for entry.

Great fun castle with lots of places to explore including wonderful views from towers. If your able you can climb down and up large staircases to find nooks and crannies from by gone days. A great way to spend an hour or so. Good place to visit with an agile dog, she loved exploring with me.

Spent a couple of hours in Raglan Castle but for £4.50 it was a good day out. Dogs are allowed but not up to the upper floors. Its a good example of ruins from pre Tudor times when it was destroyed during the Civil War.
