Visitor Operation Team


Superbly sited, high above the River Wye, Goodrich Castle is still largely intact and protected by wide and deep ditches cut into the rock. This magnificent red sandstone castle, with a 12th century keep standing three stories high and extensive remains from the 13th and 14th centuries, looks across the beautiful Wye Valley to Symonds Yat. Once inside, a free audio tour recounts the infamous 'siege of Goodrich castle'
