Visit Caldicot Castle in its beautiful setting of tranquil gardens and a wooded country park.
Founded by the Normans, developed in royal hands as a stronghold in the Middle Ages and restored as a Victorian family home, the castle has a romantic and colourful history.
Find out about its past with an audio tour, explore the medieval towers and take in the breath-taking views of the parklands and surrounding area from the battlements.
The Children's Activity Station includes puzzles and games, tree and leaf identification, draw your own shields and armour and the chance to make a castle to take home. In fine weather, you can play chess or draughts on the giant chessboard.
Caldicot Castle is set in fifty five acres of beautiful Country Park. The river Nedern winds its way through areas of woodland and pasture and the wildlife pond is complete with a pond-dipping station. The park offers an ideal setting for picnics and walks against the magnificent backdrop of the medieval castle walls, with picnic tables and barbecue hearths on site.
Caldicot Castle is open daily from 1st April (or Easter, whichever is earlier) to 31st October inclusive from 11.00am to 5.00pm. Last audio tour issued at 4.00pm.
The Country Park is always open. Between the end of October and February vehicular access is restricted to the Church Road car park only from 5.00pm until 8.00am.
