Raglan castle wasn't like all the other touristy ones I visited through out the UK. This one is a ruined castle. We went midday on a Friday, and nobody else was there! Above that, it was only a small fee to enter. We explored for an hour or two all of the different rooms, swirly stairs, turrets, underground cellars, and... More

My partner and I went to Raglan Castle due to it's filming connections with the TV show Merlin. We adored it. We were only there an hour but it felt like we had been there all day. There is so much to explore and lots of little interactive parts for both adults and children. It's well worth the money and... More

This was our first stop on our road trip around Wales and this was the castle I chose out of many to visit in Wales. This was the stand out for me as I loved the fact it was mainly ruins and original. When we arrived I was blown back by the sheer beauty and scale of the castle. It... More

A great castle that you can walk around and get up close to. Plenty of information boards in English and Welsh and also props around. Towers to climb for great views. Toilets in car park and only a drink fridge in shop. Info sheets for children to answer.

Great place to visit . Spent 2 hours walking around. Lots of information about the castle. I would recommend families take a picnic as we couldn't find a cafe near by.

Visited with my mum and sister and was very impressed. Considering this was a castle which was built as a show of wealth, this is seriously prestigious and grande for it's day. Must be nice to have money even in those days. Really interesting reading about the castle and I should imagine there are some houses locally which have some... More

I love castles particularly those that you have to use your imagination. Raglan castle is one of those castles. It is set back off the main road with plenty if parking. The shop staff are very friendly although the shop was a little small. Once inside it really is quite breathtaking. With a free guide you can imagine yourself stepping... More

As English Heritage members, went to visit Raglan. Took dog which was a first for us and she did enjoy the outing. Took approx 40 mins to go round the castle, absorb the features and walk around the bottom. Very enjoyable but would be hard to take the average 1 40 mins advertised. Well worth a visit.

We were driving back through Wales and saw the castle from the main road. So we decided to pop in. It was late in the day, and they were only open for another hour. But this gave us just enough time to walk around and take lots of photos, and spend a lot of money in the gift shop! They... More
