Lots of things to see and do; excellent signage, one of the more complete castles I have visited. Went with daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter. Granddaughter climbed every step and sought every view. Had a grand time.

My Fiance and I love castles and have visited many throughout the UK, this is definitely one of our favourites. It is quite a fancy castle but as it was built more for show than for battle this is not surprising. The staff here are great and recommended that we also visit Chepstow castle as we were heading back to... More

This castle has far more to offer than that at Monmouth and will take a little longer to visit. Worth stopping off the motorway for an hour to take a look.

Delightful Visitors' Shop, with a large selection of items to buy, helpful ladies, free umbrellas to borrow if the Welsh rain appears! My South African guests found it very interesting and an hour was only just long enough to explore the ruins, peer down into the dungeons and look at the well set up rooms at the entrance with a...

Visited recentley with bus connection from Newport. With a short walk from the village. The castle is an impressive to the eye. Although a ruin, whats left inspires and you can only imagine what it once looked like.You can climb several towers with fantastic views over the area. The small exhibition is great telling you the owners from the start... More

Despite the high winds and horizontal rain we still enjoyed our visit. Lots of interesting nooks and crannies to explore. Very good café/coffee shop at the farm next door.

I don't use the word 'Magnificent' very often but Raglan Castle is just that. Impressive from a distance, yesterday was the first time inside. At £6.00 entrance fee for an adult with £4.20 concessions, it is not cheap, but go early just after 10.00am on a good weather day if possible and take a picnic and make a day of... More

Great afternoon out with the children The castle is well preserved and is accessible - we bought swords and shields at the very nice shop by the castle, which meant the children had lots of 'play' time There is a small cafe for refreshments as well

This is a great place to visit for all ages, with lots of places to explore and towers to climb. It is set in beautiful countryside, which are best viewed from the top of the Keep. The staff at the little shop were friendly. I will be happy to go back one day.
