Superb example and just one of many in this corner of the Welsh borders! If you pop into The Angel Inn in the village you are bound to meet one of the local enthusiasts who will be able to answer any question you may have regarding this and other Norman structures in this part of Wales!

Captivating castle with more extensive ruins than Skenfrith, but not as huge as the White Castle. One walks across a bridge over a dry moat to enter the ruins. Original stonework dates to Norman times with renovations made in 13th and 14th centuries. This castle was somewhat more difficult to find than Skenfrith and White Castle as it is down... More

A fascinating 12th century castle where the walls still impress. Although a ruin, railed steps make it possible to climb to the upper floors giving an opportunity to enjoy the views & appreciate the amazing building skills. Grosmont is a charming village & includes an early 12th century church also well worth a visit.

This is away from the road, surrounded by grass and trees, it is a simply beautiful spot! There's enough of the castle left to have a real sense of what life must have been like when it was inhabited.

We stayed in a little cottage in Grosmont with our dog and this castle was a 2 minute walk from our dog, lovely walk around the castle and then over the bridge to explore further, we went in the evening around 8pm, peaceful and tranquil and our dog loved it too.

This is no Warwick but what remains of Grosmont Castle is well worth a visit. You can sense the history and (carefully) climb the ramparts. Delightfully situated and free admission. A lovely way to spend an hour or two.

Great castle . Wear appropriate shoes when visiting as the steps to the tower are uneven and steep. Picnic bench also available

One of three castles built in Norman times and all just a few miles away from each other. You can tell they were built by the same people as the styling is so similar. Grosmont is a small castle but worth a quick look. Go on a nice day or it might be quite squelchy. Entrance was free and the... More

A small village 11 miles from Hereford, Abergavenny ,and Monmouth .One shop, one church, one castle, one pub. Part of the three castle's walk,which is popular with Rambler's all over Britain. Well worth a visit,a step back in time for many ,beautiful for others. Come and see for yourself.
