“A great place to explore to your heart’s content”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

We have driven past this castle numerous times, but with the beautiful weather made a special trip. Oh what a joy. I loved the separate keep with its flooded moat, very photogenic. The kids enjoyed running around the extensive grounds and exploring all of the nooks and crannies of all the different buildings and rooms. Staff were very helpful and offered us the best deal to get the two families in, although we subsequently took out Cadw membership as enjoyed the day so much. Would love to come back when they have a re-enactment.

“Merlin was filmed here”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

Castle was a great start to our visit to Wales. The staff was very friendly, talking with the teller I noticed some photos. The staff members told me that a handful of episodes of Merlin were filmed here, which is one of my fav shows, so it made the visit extra special. Need a snack the kids found a apple tree on the right side of the castle and they thought that was cool; pretending they were the king and queen eating the fruit from their garden.

“great place for kids, and for the history”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

our grandchildren enjoyed a day out here, spent ages running up and down the battlements, with sword, looking for the dragon, if you pick a day when a local group are acting out a battle with guns and swords makes the day even better. young children need supervision as can be dangerous it is after all an old castle.

“Great place to take the grandchildren”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

A proper castle, with plenty to explore. Our grandchildren loved it. The view from the tower is magnificent, and one can imagine how it must have worked inmedieval times.
