Took a day trip here with friends and was pleasantly surprised by the affordable fun it offered! Took about an hour and a half to wander around the castle and read the information signposted around. Would recommend this as a day trip as the town also has a lovely feel.

Good drama in cliff location. History very well portrayed, well labelled, it has had an interesting chequered past. Disabled parking available but not well signposted. We will go back

Such a fascinating visit. Great value for £4.50 per adult and you can climb quite a few areas of the castle, although the steps are very steep and narrow!

A large, comparatively well preserved site with lots of nooks and crannies to explore; very accessible on foot from the town...£4.50 adult entry.

Chepstow castle we went here on St David's day so was a bit busy as most Welsh castles and tourists places are free that day. But saying that it was a good mornings day out enjoyed the history lesson and the great views over the Wye valley. Plenty of parking in the local car park and just a short walk... More

Having driven past many times, not visited until now when my son was doing a project on castles. Quite pricey for a quick visit, but took a picnic and enjoyed the scenery as it was a lovely day with the sun shining.

I reccomend to visit Chepstow Castle. Many beautiful views and amazing castle. There are several paths and 3 floors to watch the castle from a height.

I'm a Chepstow resident and kind of took the castle for granted. But it's a nice walk around for an hour or so. Unless you're really thorough with the plaques and notices you couldn't really pass much more time than that here. It's slightly more expensive than other castles, and during our visit part of it was closed. But what's... More

This is a great spot to visit if you want to explore a classic Norman Era Castle, although mostly ruins, it does still have enough maintained towers and fortifications to get a true feeling of what living in a castle must have been like during the earliest days of English Castle defences. Its not the type of place you go... More

I'm lucky enough to live just up the road from the castle, but every time I visit I'm taken away from everyday life and taken to another world! I've also seen Bellowhead here and, although they performed brilliantly, the castle makes a fantastic gig venue - if you get the chance to visit 'castle roc' during August each year, you... More
