Raglan is a great castle to visit and is one of the finest castles in south Wales.Raglan is also very well maintained by CADW.The staff in the shop are very friendly and sell a great selection of quality gifts . Events at the castle are always well organised with plenty going on.The only down side is the toilets need modernising.

What sets Raglan castle apart from other castles in the area are the stunning panoramic views from the top of the towers. In addition, you can spend a very enjoyable afternoon exploring the ruins and watching the wildlife in the moat. I did however feel the information displays were a little dry and uninteresting and could do with a bit... More

Magnificent Castle. The Ticket Office/Shop is very tastefully designed, and very in keeping with the Castle precincts. Everything was well laid out and signed. The staff in the shop were extremely friendly and welcoming, and I discovered that as a CADW member I get 10% discount on purchases--something I had not been told at Tintern or Chepstow!

We took our 9-year-old boys to Raglan over Easter and were surprised at how much in-tact it is. You can explore and climb around and get a feel for what it must have been like before the Civil War period. Very informative display boards with just the right amount of information to not overload you. A wonderful tea rooms just... More

Saturday 11th April. This was a trip with a family keen on history. Children were 2 young boys of 11 and 13. The castle itself is large and impressive; and although "ruined" there is enough left standing to give a good impression of what it might once have looked like. There is enough to see to occupy about an hour;... More

Well worth a visit, it is a good castle! Lots to see and plenty of stomach churning steps up the turrets! Great perspective and views from the top though with railings and a flagpole to cling onto until you get your legs! try the cafe next door, nice food and drinks available.

This is a ruined castle but with enough left to view & walk up a few towers. The views from the castle walls & the towers is fantastic & there are plenty of informative signs at various points around the castle indicating what the area was used for & drawings on how it used to look. Some of the spiral... More

Adults could wander and admire the architecture and history, kids ran wild and played hide and seek for over an hour, checking in with us every so often. The adjacent farm cafe was good value, clean and friendly, and we were able to go back into the castle for another half hour of exploring and late afternoon sunshine.

A beautiful ruin well preserved. Lots of different places to explore. Spent an enjoyable few hours looking around. I would think this is a good place for children.
