This was a fun place to take my granddaughter at Easter where we searched for eggs. But actually any time would be good. Granddaughter was really excited to explore. It is not very big but so interesting.

We enjoyed our visit to White Castle. Sadly, no access to the towers anymore, but the views from the back were still lovely. The venue was free. The drive there on a narrow road with hedgerows on either side was a bit intimidating at first,...More

Amazing views. Picnic benches large areas to chill. Parking can be restricted as no much space. If you enjoy walking you can walk to 4 castles

An interesting ruin of a castle, with an enormous moat and many of the walls if not buildings in place. We approached by foot but there are minor roads to the site.

We visited here recently and we're lucky to have the place to ourselves for most of the visit. The remains of the castle are stunning as are the views. Like other reviewers we would have liked to climb the tower but the gate was locked....More

Staying locally for a week and the guide recommended Skenfrith Castle and Grosmont so I got the OS map out, laid it on the floor and found Skenfrith but then also saw the White Castle half way along our route. So we stopped there first...More

A commanding position on top of a hill with widespread views, this is a real castle ( not like that apology for a castle at Skenthrith). Massive corner towers, a deep moat and drawbridge give a real feel for its power in Norman times. Alas...More
