We visited Raglan recently and really enjoyed our brief visit on the way home. We have English Heritage membership (it's run by Cadw, but you get free entry to these properties with a EH card) but didn't think £4.50 for an adult fairly cheap considering how much there is to see and how much time you could spend there. There is ample parking and it is a very short walk to the entrance from there.
It's a shame there isn't a castle cafe on site and you have to walk round on the road to that. The castle was busy and we found the staff a little abrupt at the main desk as we gained entry.
The castle itself has an imposing gatehouse where you enter and a moat to walk around. We loved the oriel window and climbing stairs to gain vantage points and get views over the castle and the rest if the surrounding countryside. There are so many little features too such as gargoyles and shields carved into the stone by the state apartments. It is worth taking the short walk around the moat and perusing the niches too.
We will be returning and would definitely recommend!
