Had a fab morning exploring the castle. Not too busy and friendly and helpful staff. Would have been nice to see people working on repairing the doors that have been previously started! Exhibition space closed which was a bit of a shame.

We visited with a group of anthropology and archaeology undergraduate students from the U.S. The castle is fascinating, and the maps and labels did a great job explaining the complicated history of its construction and use. They are doing conservation work on some doors on-site and though it was a weekend when we visited and no one was working, it... More

We went to see a production here which couldnt have been in a better setting. The only trouble was that there was a concert at the local racecourse which drowned out the play. Need to sort out better schedules

What a brilliant venue for fantastic outdoor theatre. Two occasions a week apart, both fabulous. Definitely would go back as there is a cover so even if it pours with rain, you stay dry! Fantastic.

Visited with my 5 year old and 1 year old. Some parts were tricky for a buggy but we managed. My 5 year old loved it and there were lots of nooks and crannys to play hide and seek.

Great way to spend and hour or so - lovely historic site which is well maintained. Well worth a visit, especially on a sunny day.

Fantastic place for photographs. I was very lucky on this visit as there was many people dressed in period costume, which really helped bring to life the historical side of the Castle

This was a lovely castle to wander around. There is plenty of information about the place explaining the different areas. Nice little gift shop. Also near the tourist information and the Chepstow Museum - makes a good day out.

The castle dominates the town and the river crossing. It is ruined but during our visit an archer was giving demonstrations to a group of school children including shooting at balloons -and hitting them!! The kids were mightily impressed and it was a nice touch to see a bit of history being re-enacted. The view from the castle is impressive... More
