  • Lovely castle to explore, with the ability to still climb to the top and admire the beautiful views. It's a huge castle, so allow plenty of time to wander around and enjoy it.  more »
  • Very interesting place, great for kids to explore although keep hold of young ones as there are some obviously slightly treacherous areas. Parking pretty basic but free and porter loo's outside leave a little too be desired. Nice little gift shop but nowhere obvious to get food or drinks from.
  • Outstanding castle & gift shop with lovely helpful staff. The surroundings are just breathtaking, views are stunning and the history storyboards are great, helpful & informative whilst being easy to digest & understand. A definite must see & I want to bring my loved ones to see this castle as I know they would love it too. Please respect history, protect our historic buildings/heritage and support protective organisations like Cadw and English Heritage to help retain these stunning buildings.
  • The kids always love playing and role playing at this large, well maintained castle. We're becoming regulars. Well worth buying the CADW membership if you're planing 4 or more visits to the larger sites per year. Purchase at the Castle rather than online for a greater discount.
  • The Youngest castle in Wales with unique layout reflecting it's late design and French influence. Very friendly staff who are happy to help, Grab a guide book from the shop as it will help with the tour. or simply follow the info panels as you walk. Very dog friendly to responsible owners, who keep dogs on leads.
  • One of the most complete castles I've been too. So much history and some really interesting inventions inside.
