This is a great castle with some great grounds, great place to have a picnic. This is free to enter, there is a donation point if want to. Not much spaces but plenty for what it is.

Right on Offa's Dyke Path. Make time to stop and look around this well preserved monument if you are doing the walk here

As a castle enthusiast, I thought I had seen most of them in Wales. But this time, we visited the little-known border castle called White Castle. What a surprise. Set in a beautiful rural location, the castle was originally built in the 12th Century by the Normans to protect the route from Wales to Hereford. This moated castle, although now mainly ruins, would have been a magnificent sight when originally built.
The castle tells many fascinating stories. One very unusual story is what happened there in 1942 when Rudolf Hess, Hitler’s deputy, was incarcerated in a prison near Abergavenny. He flew on a secret mission to Britain but was captured in Scotland. The purpose of his mission is still a mystery but some historians argue that, after falling out of favour with the Nazi hierarchy, he wanted to use his power to enter peace negotiations with Britain, which would ease the pressure on Germany on the Eastern Front, In doing so, he thought he might be seen as a national hero. It did not work and, to Hitler’s annoyance, he remained a prisoner there for three years.

He was allowed, for health reasons, to walk around this castle and spent much of his time drawing and painting (see the photo below). He had clearly inherited his mentor’s artistic inclinations. This castle is also positioned close to the Offa’s Dyke Trail – a walkers paradise. This castle may not get the tourist publicity of the great Edward the First castles in north Wales – like Conway and Beaumaris. But I think it’s a gem and well worth a visit if you love medieval castles as I do.

This is my favourite of the “three castles”.

It has an impressive large outter ward which is mainly in tact, before you enter the inner ward which has more detail and ruins to explore.

It has good signage, an impressive entrance and a nice moat.

This castle is free to visit, there is plenty of space for a picnic and is limited free parking outside.

Worth seeing.

We visited White Castle whilst staying locally in the area.
It’s incredibly well tended and a great example of one of the 3 castles in the area. Lots of information boards around explaining the full history.
Some picnic benches dotted about and generally a nice few hours spent.

We were looking for somewhere to stop mid journey between Devon and the Brecon Beacons to stretch our legs.
We arrived nice and early and were the first in the tiny car park. The weather wasn't amazing but this site is still beautiful. It is a perfect picnic stop with plenty of open spaces to enjoy.
The ruins themselves are majestic and so rich in history & eventhough there aren't any facilities it certainly is worth a visit.

I had no idea this castle existed until seeing it on the map the evening before checking a route I was walking the following day. And even then I dismissed it as one of the numerous old motte and bailey earthworks scattered about the English Welsh borders.

However, the following day I was very pleasantly surprised to discover that in fact t is a very decent sized stone fortress. How wrong, therefore, I was!

It's a hugely impressive place, dominating the local area and surrounded by an impressive, 'king sized' (or should I say 'duke sized') moat. It is rather large too, occupying a larger than expected footprint.

The site contains impressive ruins plus information boards, no facilities as such (hardly surprising as it is in the middle of nowhere). On a sunny day, its the kind of place to take a picnic and have a wander about for an hour or two.

It really is in the middle of nowhere, requiring the careful navigation of narrow lanes if you are driving. Parking is a but limited too, it seemed. However, it seems to me a worthy destination for a half day out.

I do wish Cadw would not quote limited opening hours for their unstaffed sites. In this case the castle is clearly open "all reasonable hours", and families were enjoying the grounds at 7pm. The most extensive ruins of the Three Castles, with both inner and outer baileys with extant walls. Worth making the detour on narrow lanes to find

Came here to see the castle after living in Abergavenny all my life and never knowing it was there. An interesting little walk around and a great spot for a picnic with my little girl. There were lots of walking routes nearby too.
