“Enjoyable visit to medieval castle”
Reviewed September 1, 2014

My partner and I recently enjoyed a couple of hours wander around Raglan Castle. The castle and grounds are reasonably clean and well maintained. The view from the tower is worth the climb. It was interesting to read the history of the castle and see artists impressions and old photo's. A good place to visit if you are in the area and we felt that £4.50 each was a reasonable entrance fee.

“Best castle in Wales”
Reviewed September 1, 2014

Best castle in Wales...lots of towers to climb, stairs to descend and a moat to avoid! Superb views (of approaching enemies) from the towers. A nice little souvenir shop and plenty of space to stop and have a picnic. Watched bats flying in and out of the ruins at twilight with the local bat watch society.

“A beautifully presented ruined castle!!”
Reviewed August 27, 2014 via mobile

A lovely castle to walk around, the castle has a fanastic tower to take stunning pictures of the surrounding scenery.
Definitely worth a visit if you like castles.
The only negative point I would voice is the lack of information within the castle on the info panels.

“Best castle we have seen in this area!”
Reviewed August 27, 2014

We truly enjoyed visiting Raglan Castle, and had reasonably good weather on the day. The castle is rather big but not overwhelmingly. It was one of our favourite places to see in this area.

“An amazing castle with great atmosphere”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

My husband and I really enjoyed our visit to Raglan castle. The castle was big and even though some parts were in ruins, it was still impressive and worth a visit.

There's a nice café close to the castle,which does good food, cakes and coffee and if the weather is warm enough, you can sit outside the café and eat while looking at fantastic rural views.

The castle has a nice gift shop with some really interesting things to buy.
