  • A wonderful look back over the history of Welsh Military history.
  • Great place to visit
  • We were fortunate to qualify for castle keys and have made good use of them! The castle tour is one of the best tours I've been on - the architecture of the castle is amazing. The staff are excellent and very friendly, especially downstairs in the Firing Line museum.
  • Not much to look at and a bit expensive
  • Excellent display tucked away under the castle. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly (excellent cafe upstairs too!)
