This is a big castle that has serveral levels to explore and many nice benches and lots of grass for picnics and breaks. Very interesting! We visited on Easter Sunday when they had their Easter programme and it was really charming and funny.

We visited on easter sunday. They were hosting a dinosaur and stone age weekend which was all free and great fun. We managed to learn a.bit about.the history of the castle and thank the team for their hospitality and good humour during the day.

Went here on the Saturday before Easter so was naturally very busy! It was an amazing castle, but was £16 for two adults which seems a little steep. It was however a beautiful castle and we really enjoyed learning all about it's origins.

This is a lovely spot I have visited several times. A fine late medieval ruin with much to explore and two towers you can climb to the top. And there you are met with fantastic views of the most beautiful Monmouthshire countryside. Easy free parking a nice shop and a cafe in the farm next door.

My wife and I visited here when we spotted it in passing. It was early afternoon and very busy but we were guided into a field to park by an attendant. Parking was free and a short walk to the castle. It was £6.50 each to get in which seemed reasonable. Once inside there were stalls selling food and items... More

I've been to Raglan before - it's a favourite castle of mine. I was with an eight year old and she loved it. It's a large building with plenty to explore, lots of steps to climb etc. We took a picnic along and sat in the sun in the grounds which is a short walk from the car park so... More

We have passed this castle many times but it didn't look much from the road, so we hadn't been until now. It was not quite the small empty shell that would take two minutes to walk round that we thought and we were pleasantly surprised. We had a nice wander around on a sunny spring morning. Nice little souvenir shop... More

I much preferred the views from atop the castle ruins to tours of opulent finery with rooms cordoHe'd off. The guides were entertaining, and we enjoyed using our imaginations to study the castle ruins.
