A stunning statement of wealth and power Everything’s great about this place, from its great tower, which evokes memories of earlier fortresses like Caernarfon, to the great gatehouse, which ‘wows’ the visitor just as its owner intended. If, as they...more

We visited Raglan Castle recently and thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Sufficient detail was provided in key areas for us to follow the history of the castle. Climbing the watch tower was worth the gorgeous view we had of the surrounding countryside.
An interesting castle to visit as its still quite intact. It's possible to climb up the tower and get a spectacular view over the surrounding countryside. The gift shop stocks a wide range of good quality gifts with a price range to suit all pockets!...More
Great time spent clambering all over this ancient place despite the cold weather. Perfect even for little children because there is so much space. The cafe in the farm next door is excellent too, the cream tea was delicious with proper Rodda’s clotted cream.

What a glorious building in a magnificent location - much later (early 15th century) than other castles in the area and only in occupational use for some 200years. This was a Royalist stronghold during the English civil war and after final surrender its destruction was...More
Popped in after a Weekend at St Braviels.
Looked great driving up, and was delightfully quiet, which I prefer.
Some of it tumbledown, some of it fairly pristine.
Unusual steampunk'esque sculptures to delight the children, many tunnels undercrofts and staircases to discover.
Only need an...More
I had fond memories of visiting this castle with my young children and was worried that it might not be exciting as a pensioner without children. However I need not have worried. The castle is magnificent with extensive ruins to explore. It certainly appeals to...More
