A really nice castle. Lots of scope to use your imagination! Interesting information points. Beautiful views (if you're brave enough to go ask the way to the top!). A good afternoon out, we loved it!

Large castle which must have been very impressive in its day. I didn't enjoy it as much as I've enjoyed other castles and at £6 is quite expensive. I think I'd struggle to spend more than an hour exploring it. There is some good information...More

Not sure if trains from London to Raglan. I would think Newport your nearest main line station. Best to go on line and check, Great Western rail I think.
