About
White Castle is the best preserved and most imposing of the trio of Monmouthshire fortresses known as the ‘Three Castles’ – which includes Grosmont and Skenfrith – built to control the border. Originally constructed from wood and earth, a series of renovations transformed it into the significant defensive structure we see today. The displayed opening times are our general pattern. Please check the Cadw website for specific times and days, including closures.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Amazing ruins of moated castle in Monmouthshire. Great for photography, very atmospheric. You could almost feel the history in the walls.

Don’t be concerned if you’re driving down a narrow lane- this is the way to White Castle .
On the day we went it was raining and windy. We were the only ones there but definitely worth a visit.

Wonderful castle. Beautiful scenery. I feel privileged to have such history on my door step. For those that have never been before though, the narrow lanes leading up to it can be a bit hairy!

A magnificent castle, both in its size and in its state of preservation. A standout Welsh hidden gem, with free entry, it’s a must-visit for those staying in the Abergavenny area like us.

Down a country lane and you find this great example of a castle with a moat.
Great to look around and just imagine what life was like. Great architecture and history here.
Free to enter. Car park was small.

This is a fabulous castle- you can really get a feel for how it once was with the castle and the outside keep area- which is perfect for picnics in fine weather.
No charge to enter and in a beautiful spot. Interesting info board relates how Rudolph Hess - the then deputy fuhrer -was taken there to feed the swans when he was held down the road near Abergavenny...after he had left Nazi Germany and crashed his plane in Scotland. How thoroughly decent the UK was to take him to somewhere so picturesque and allowed him to paint and feed the swans!

Very bracing place to go, often see children able to charge around with so much space, wonderful that you can walk all the way round it. Can get the car right up there. No amenities but a couple of benches to perch and still be in sight of the castle and people.

A wonderful castle close to Monmouth and Abergavenny. Very beautiful and well preserved castle. Some parking available. A small village with very few amenities. No cost to visit. The children love visiting this castle.
