Unlike many of Wales's Castles this was the home of a powerful family, not just a military garrison built by the English King to keep the Welsh in check. As one of the last great castles to be build in Britain, it is very French in inspiration. Very interesting historic monument and its destruction during the Civil War was at a turning point in English and Welsh history. Thereafter the aristrocracy built country houses, not castles. It was a great medieval building in its time. The ruins are impressive and large. If you like ruined castles you will love it. The cost is modest for a building of this importance. I had driven past it many times on my way to the Brecons. Glad we visited it. You can take your dog in on a lead and on a warm day its a good place for a picnic on the grassy banks sorrounding the ruins. Nearby small town of Raglan has shops and pubs or there is a cafe just down the lane
