We called in here to kill an hour or two before meeting friends. It's a great little castle, with beautiful views across the river Wye. There's enough remaining structure to explore & get a sense of what it might have been like when it was built 1000 years ago. For us there was just enough information dotted around on information...

I recently visited this castle with my husband and we both really enjoyed the walk around it. There is just enough information provided about the castle, but I would rather see more about the historical context (but Wikipedia came in very useful). The entrance fee costs no more than £5 and it is money well spent, we think. Overall we... More

We literary stumbled about this castle as we were trying to get to caldicot. But stopping to visit it was a brilliant idea. Amazing location, history and preservation. The architecture of the place is mind blowing and we did play around in the cellars, great hall and tower. Highly worth a visit.

Me and my husband visited here whilst staying in Wales, large carpark £1.50 for 3 hours which is cheap however the castle only took us just over an hour so visited chepstow town centre as well. The castle itself had nice views, a lot of historical facts but very little to do and look at compared to other castles we... More

This was one of the loveliest castles I think I have visited... It still has enough of the building to get a real sense of how it would have looked when it was fully operational... The views are stunning and I fully recommend (if you can) going all the way to the top!

We came here on Sunday and there were very few people here, which was great in one way but rather sad in another. There is a huge car park right next to the castle and there is no charge for this all day on Sundays. The castle is a lot larger than it first appears and it is clear how... More

Parents had the day off, I had the day off so we thought we would visit the castle. We were here for a few hours, it's pretty big! Very nice setting and more to see than we expected. Staff were always visible if you wanted to ask anything and seemed friendly and knowledgeable. I've had to put this was a... More

We took the grand kids to Chepstow Castle for a day out, it is an amazing place and such a lot of fun for the kids. The staff on duty were very helpful, informative and friendly. Thanks for a great day out.

We went as a large group of family. The Guide book is full of interesting facts, and the plaques on the wall help to tell you what is around you. The Views from the castle walls are lovely. Well worth a visit! I do wonder if it would help to have staff to keep half an eye out for behavior... More

Took my daughter and grandson to see this last week and wasn't disappointed. I've been here before but had forgotten how grand and imposing it is. Apart from the usual exploring of the castle there was a display of medieval weapons in the grounds which was interesting to everyone and there were two "reinactors" on duty showing what old fashioned...
