Lovely to walk around the castle and grounds for an hour. Kept very well by the Humphries Family. The castle isn’t huge, and is on several different levels. The gardens are well kept.

Visited today and are really glad we did. The castle is semi ruined with an impressive history. It’s beautifully kept and the views are stunning. There is no entry fee but you can leave a donation, which we did as it was well worth it....More

A privately owned castle in pretty good nick- you can plainly see that the owners have made an effort to make something of the castle so that visitors can enjoy this ruin. On entry there is a honesty box to put your entry fee into...More

Set on a hillside, Usk Castle has enough remaining to give a visitor a glimpse of what the place would have been like in its hey day. A couple of the towers, the gatehouse and some of the curtain wall remain. A word of caution,...More
