  • Great views and a lovely castle. Don't go expecting a fully formed castle but there's plenty to see and the viewing platform is great. Free parking and no admission charge. Also potential for a walk around the castle and in the woods.
  • Great little place. Free entry. Excellent views is the River Dee. Highlight is the climb up the tower on the right hand side as you enter. A spiral staircase has been installed here. Spectacular views from the top. It can get a bit hairy when it windy. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Nice castle in a nice place has a very nice walkway with this rubber flooring makes a really nice walk along the coast. There is ample parking for you here as well. Did see dog walkers around as well.
  • Not much of a castle.but it was the first stamp on the Welsh invasion. It is being maintained and is interesting in it's designed. Free to go to with free parking. Basingwork Abbey is a few miles further. Again free.worth seeing both together to make more of a day.
  • Beautiful scenery, easy parking and good info points. There is a well maintained path so much of the area is wheelchair friendly. There is a steel grill bridge to cross to enter the castle which our dogs were fine with but my wife hated as she's scared of bridges. Also stairs into two towers; they were adding steps into one of these when we visited which will give increased elevated views over the estuary. Lots of wading birds on the estuary.
