£4.50 per adult and £1 to park. That was off to a good start. Very big interesting old castle with lots of little stairways, doors and chambers to explore. I don't like it when I visit an old castle only to find most doorways and stairways are blocked off. That is not the case here and you'll have a great... More

Well kept castle with friendly staff. Would like to come back when they have the concerts on. Easy to get to, car park right outside which is handy and it is also close to the shops.

Wow. Where to start. Firstly, the building itself is stunning, with commanding views of the river Wye. We were very lucky on our visit to have seen a display of medieval weaponry and fighting tactics by a group of expert enthusiasts. The admission price was very reasonable. All that was missing was a nice tea room.

Thought we would call into Chepstow on way home after a short break, Didn't expect a lot but was surprised how interesting it was, stunning views across the Wye. Kids imaginations running wild at the thoughts of bowman and knights. Not expensive, but don't expect anything apart from a ruin. Worth a visit yes.

Best castle in Wales for my money. Set on a bluff in the bend of the Wye it commands a superb position, both strategically and aesthetically.

One of oldest Norman structures in all of Great Britain. Well preserved and nicely maintained. Perched on high cliffs overlooking the River Wye, it affords wonderful views of the old town as well as the surrounding landscape. Good descriptions of the various phases of its construction over the centuries and those responsible. Well worth the visit. Easy to find as... More

A really interesting place to visit. There's lots of it still standing to explore, and you can clearly see the different phases of building. The information panels are very helpful. The views over the River Wye are lovely! When we were there, they were setting up some medieaval tents and thinfs, and there was a display of birds of prey... More

Had a lovely walk to the castle on a sunny Sunday, 3 girls all loved it (aged 14,11,10) not an all day visit but definitely filled an hour or two.

A very fine castle with amazing view of the river Wye, on a sunny day you can see for miles and it's beautiful. Castle itself is a great one to visit, you need at least an hour but there are plenty of other things to do I Chepstow to make a day of the visit. Close to the motorway and... More
