I went to the castle with school and found it really cool seeing how the castle was made and why...I loved climbing up the steps but up was hard work so I wouldn't bring young children or people who not like walking As I went with a school every this was already payed for so I don't know what that...

From the outside you would think this is a small, old castle that you can breeze through. We thought exactly that but ended up spending hours wandering the grounds! While there is restoration, this is an architectural site and doesn't re-create furnishings and so on. There is ample explanation of the stages of expansion.

Visited on a sunny but chilly day and had a great time. The kids had a great time running around and found lots of places to hide. There is enough of the castle remaining to imagine what it would of been like whole. Views over the river where stunning. One of the better castles we have visited.

Like Tintern Abbey, much of these walls are standing & have gorgeous views of the Wye River. A wonderful place to just walk around

A larger castle to visit if you or your children like castles and more than some other more ruined ones so easier to imagine life there.

We stopped in you can see it all in one hour. There is quite a bit left intact so you can imagine how things were. No staff are inside the castle. Spacious and good views worth a quick stop in.

I visited this castle with a friend and enjoyed it very much. It is an imposing structure in pretty good condition but has been partly dismantled as a result of its historical decline. It is however quite a unique norman castle due to its linear build as opposed to the typical concentric construction. It is also in a great imposing... More

Mainly outdoor castle that you can explore in 30-45 minutes. It is on a cliff by they Wye river. We were going to Tintern Abbey and ended up getting a 3 day visitors pass, and since it wasn't going to cost anything more went ahead and stopped here. We have two kids 8 & 11 and they seem to like... More
