“worth a look”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

stunning views, good storyboards and very interesting. A bracing walk up to the castle from the town but well worth the effort.

“Always a wonderful experience”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

Being local we have had the chance to visit the castle on many occasions. It is free to visit and and gives the most magnificent views all around for miles.

There are no staff there or facilities, but it is worth an hour or so of your time. Toilets, shops / cafes and free parking are available down in the town.

There are a number of ways to walk up, which will provide you with some good exercise, but if you might struggle with this, you can drive up and there is a free car park which allows access to the ruin from a level path.

Do bring your camera and if you can plan a visit on a warm sunny day, all the better.

“Fantastic Castle, With Fantastic Views”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

This is definitely one of my favourite Castles so far. The views are amazing if you get it one a good day and you can see for miles. There is a little walk up to the castle and you can walk round the castle. Well worth a visit just for the views.

“The best views in Montgomeryshire”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

We are lucky enough to live close and take any chance to visit the castle. Its a lovely spot to take a picnic or a naughty bag of chips from the town below. The views from the castle are breath taking and I never get bored of them.
