  • Really good day out. Spent about 2 hours here exploring. Free parking and free to get in. We were able to walk up the tall buildings such as the keep. The stairs are very narrow and winding but the vi...  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)
