Raglan Castle is a gem with the only modern part being the gift shop at the entrance . The castle is as it should be aged but not ruined by poor restorations that can be seen in other castles . You can really get a sense of life as it was using helpful signage in most areas of the castle... More

We visited on a very wet Saturday but thoroughly enjoyed our visit. A small room set out the history and the castle, though ruined, is atmospheric and great for imagining its history. The shop has more interesting items than usual and the service was friendly and cheerful. We very much look forward to returning with our young grandchildren!

As you go through the astonishing entrance of this great castle, you see it come to life! The castle was not crowded when we visited it, even on a sunny weekend. The entrance fee is good value for a family (£13.50 for a family of 4). The site is fairly well preserved so it doesn't leave much to the imagination... More

I've a liking for popular Opera, during the summer Raglan Castle offered a production of Cosi Fan Tutte (Mozart) by the Popup Opera. Like so many would one day like to go to Glyndebourne, but at a couple of hundred quid a ticket, Popup Opera at £15 a ticket did appeal. Thankfully the weather on the evening was good. (as... More

This is a beautiful piece of history constructed in beautiful countryside. You can let you imagination run away with you as you walk around as much of the castle is in it's natural state. A great day out :-)

Raglan has to be my all time favourite castle. I just love it and its lack of commercialisation. I accept that it has minimal and intrusive interpretation on site, unless you go looking for it. I love that you can just wander around, in and out, up and down. I love that kids can play hide and seek. I love... More

A wonderful place to visit. Mostly ruins, although more extensive than I expected. You do need imagination and interest in castles to get the best from a visit, but there is plenty here to inspire that. While there are interpretation panels in several places it would help if there were more information labels and signs. I know they will say... More
