    We visited Caldicot Castle for a concert in mid-July. Great location with really very good acoustics for an open air venue. Made such a change from the sterile one design fits all concert venues I nor...  more »

  • A great place to explore a 13th century castle for free (please note there is an admission charge on event days, otherwise entry is free). It boasts a cafe which serves beverages (tea and coffee), soft drinks and alcoholic drinks too. I recommend the Welsh brewed Castle bitter. Large grassy areas idea for children and dogs. Well worth a visit.
  • Really enjoyed visiting for Caldicot Food Festival recently. The grounds are lovely, it was a quick walk into town, and there appeared to be plenty of parking. Food Festival was also good with a nice variety of stalls, and despite the weather there were plenty of people in attendance.
  • I accompanied my child's school (Year 2) on an educational visit to Caldicot Castle, and was very impressed by the activities which were laid on. The historical interpreters (archer, falconer, knight & lady of the castle - pictured) gave really memorable talks to the kids, which managed to be both informative and entertaining. For the seven-year-olds, the highlights ranged from seeing a falcon fly to hearing and experiencing what daily life was like in the castle 700 years ago. All in all, thoroughly recommended for an organised school trip.
  • Lovely little castle set in the Monmouthshire countryside. Went to a nice festival at the time with a good selection of produce and some nice cider. Good to go if you're in the area!
  • Wonderful place for a short walk (I am sure long one is also possible)
