  • My 11-yr-old grand-daughter is doing a school project on medieval castles and my son decided to take her to see the White Castle in the Welsh Marches, where there are many examples. I was asked to com...  more »
  • I love the colours of the fields, and the trees that surround them. The cool quietness of the river that runs through them. I love remembering swimming in that river as a child, and the map of the wor...  more »

  • A great castle to visit - very harsh in its appearance with the walls that stand near to original height. The east side is very nice too with its proximity to the river for nice little strolls. The nearby church is also worth a visit too and don't miss out on the information board north of the castle about the medieval quay. There isn't masses to see beyond the keep tower and curtain wall but the village is very nice too.
  • What a great place. Yet again the app doesn't prepare you for what a great place this is. It's much more extensive than you would imagine. There are great information boards (don't miss the one across the field outside of the castle). My children loved running up and down the undulating landscape inside the castle walls. There was a tire hanging from a tree that you could play with in the field. Parking was a bit tight on a cold day in February there were not many spaces left. Would highly recommend a visit.
  • A nice example of a Welsh Marches castle. It could benefit from more information boards and more stable pathways. Set in a nice little village with a community run cafe and close by a well known pub.
  • Lovely place, calm with grounds to picnic and sit by the river. Good cafe next to castle with lovely lady who owned the cafe
  • Nice place to visit but if you have to pick one of the Three Castles then White Castle is slightly more impressive.
