Looks slightly sawn-off which is apparently due to the fact they ran out of money to complete it- how contemporary! Nice exhibition on Welsh Castles when we visited, but the Songs of the Stones was um....unique. Like a bit of arty-farty myself but this was a little out there.

Lots to explore in this castle with old corridors and ramparts and stairs to climb, would go again as may be able to explore more of this castle as when we went we got so soggy we had to leave to get warm.

As my husband and I are both members of Cadw and we had arranged to take our gransdons to this supposedly Spooky Halloween DAY as they were with us for the half term holidays.
They had been excited about the prizes and were looking forward to this day very much, but Oh what a let down. When we got there just after lunch, we were shocked to discover that the advertised prizes for the first 200 children had changes to 50 prizes. There was no mention of this in the advertisement plus it stated that there was Arts and Crafts and Pumpkin carving, we found the pumpkin carving in one small hut within the inside of what would have been a room within the walls but no sign of any arts and crafts stalls and the whole castle grounds was bear. We have all visited the castle many times before and was disapponted that there were no decorations of anykind to create any sort of Halloween atmosphere, not even a false cobweb for effect. We had been expecting to find a variety of stalls to include a halloween theme i.e Bobbing Apples, etc. So overall a very poor effort and an absolute none event.
