  • Limited castle ruins but lovely grounds - ideal for dog walking, picnics and family fun. Info boards around the grounds help explain the castle's history. Toilets at car park.  more »

  • Fascinating site to walk around and soak up the history. Interpretation boards well done. Views excellent on a fine day. Surprisingly amount remaining to see after all those years and the scaffolding walk feels safe as you walk out into the main tower. All in all, very well preserved. Though tempting to climb straight up, if you approach over the river bridge, it is worth walking round to the right and coming at it gradually. Limited parking close by but there is good parking elsewhere in the town, if you can cope with a bit of a walk. Clun is an attractive place, in any event.
  • Wonderful tour guide unfortunately Tough parking shame about the weather dad had a good run around
  • Parking is a premium during the summer holidays but an evocative site for exploring with the kids.
  • Free to visit, information boards and lovely views. Steep climb though
  • Park up at Clun next to the old bridge, walk up to the Castle or enjoy simply walking around Clun. Excellent place for photographers.
