“Pleasantly surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

We have many castles in Wales, in various states of ruin! This one is amazing. There is so much of it to see! I took my 3 year nephew who loved it. They haven't given you too much to stand and read either, which is a good thing. However, they have managed to communicate a lot of interesting history. Loved our visit here and spent more time walking around than we thought we would.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

Really enjoyed an afternoon here. A lot to see and climb about on. Perhaps not so good if you have a fear of heights.

Fascinating. Earliest surviving stone built castle. Well worth a visit. This is a must see for visitors to this part of the world.
