Visiting Raglan Castle is a good way to spend 2/3 hours with the children (or in our case Grandchildren). It has all of those elements which make up a 'good castle' - a moat, keep, turrets, dungeons, halls, staircases and a green. Small in size but none the worse for that, our young grandchildren really enjoyed the opportunity to explore... More

I think I have visited 10 castles in the last six months and this one would have to be the best so far. At first we were apprehensive about paying the £4.50 entry fee, but did not regret it at all once inside, and we plan to go back again! To me it is an impressive structure, with lots of... More

We spent a good amount of time going through the castle remains. Took several gorgeous photos. Reasonable fees to get in and the gift store was reasonably priced. I would go back. Takes you back in time to how once others lived.

Seeing as this castle once belonged to my family I thought I should pay a visit. I found the information and history to be a little lacking. There's more available online. But overall a nice little fortification. I might have to see about claiming it back!

A great example of a welsh castle, imposing towers and big walls and it's moat. There is not a lot of internal space left as it is mainly walls, but a great couple of hours just wandering around can be had.

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.
