My husband and I really enjoyed our visit to Raglan castle. The castle was big and even though some parts were in ruins, it was still impressive and worth a visit. There's a nice café close to the castle,which does good food, cakes and coffee and if the weather is warm enough, you can sit outside the café and eat... More

visited Raglan Castle on Sunday and spent about 4 hours exploring .. Fantastic castle which is both impressive and stately .. More than just a ruin ,, it has a large tower to climb with amazing views and loads of rooms and grounds to explore ..

The last castle built in the middle ages is a sight to be seen. Truly stunning. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Well worth a visit!

Went here as we were staying about 1/2 a mile away and it seemed a shame not to. We arrived and were amazed by the beauty of the castle and the views it gave from it's towers. There were so many places to be able to explore. A really lovely afternoon out!

Our boys loved exploring Raglan, whilst the adults enjoyed imagining how it must have looked and felt to live there. Lots of nooks and crannies (as well as steps to climb!). Atmospheric and stunning views. Nice little shop too.

I have visited Raglan many times, summer and winter, and I love it - such a beautiful place full of insights into the past and with wonderful views in all directions. We brought Australian friends with young children on this occasion plus our daughter and grand-daughter and everyone had a wonderful time.

The last castle to be built in the UK reflects new and old influences as well as those from France. With an unusual moated keep inside the castle and lovely views over the countryside as well as easy access straight off the A40 this is a real treat worth visiting.

The staff could not have been more helpful to me. Although not completely disabled I do have a mobility scooter; and they told me the best way to go in and where I could securely leave my scooter inside the castle. The cafe was not open at the time. and they could see I was in need of a drink...... More

We were in the UK for 2 weeks and toured many Castles, ruined and otherwise. This was one of the best. With some Welsh heritage, I came to the UK determined to set foot in Wales and Raglan allowed us the detour out of England, being close and accessible. We were not at all disappointed. Staff was wonderful - friendly... More

So glad we stopped to see this fascinating and wonderful castle. Excellent explanations given by posters at various locations. We happened upon re-enactors which added to the enjoyment. Especially recommended for families with school-age children.
