Usk Castle nestles on a promontory overlooking the lovely town of Usk, hidden from sight most of the time, but just waiting for you to explore the ruins.
Enchanting, romantic ruins overlook the small town of Usk, and the wide river valley beyond. “It is like the secret castle that no one’s ever found” exclaimed a young boy, seeing the natural and peaceful setting, the ancient walls covered with creeper, and old stone towers inviting the visitor to explore. This is a medieval castle that fell into disuse 500 years ago, waiting to be discovered.
The lane to the castle is opposite the Fire Station on Castle Parade, off the road leading east out of Usk to Monmouth and Raglan, and goes up hill to a small car park. Walk up towards the stone archway, where you will see a kiosk on your right, with castle guides and local information.
Usk Castle is open to visitors on Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays, 10.30 - 5pm summer (10.30-4.30 winter).
There is no charge for Usk Castle Friends or children, but for adults £4
Anyone with walking difficulties may take their car up the middle track-way to the top of the hill and park by the grey Tardus. There is a level way, ‘ The Bridal Path’ , to walk into the castle through the red metal gate, which is also suitable for accompanied wheelchairs.
We accept friendly dogs on leads, but please dispose of all dog poo (and the bags) as you will be fined otherwise.
