Seriously a great attraction to visit and views from... More

Cost is £6 and you can stay as long as you like. There is limited on street parking right beside the castle but there is a large car... More

Another great Welsh castle suitable for all ages and interests. Well maintained, great historical information and visuals. The usual gift shop, can get a bit pricey for a full family but no more expensive than a trip to a cinema!

Well worth a visit. Free to English Heritage members. You can explore so much of it by yourself. No cafe but does have a good gift shop.
