We look forward to showing you this wonderful, magical, Castle that we support.


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.

We do all we can to raise the profile of the Castle and to enable as many people as possible to learn more about and enjoy the Castle, its environs and its long history.

Usk Castle Keep

Location and Visiting

Usk Castle is open almost every day, during reasonable daylight hours.  Entrance is free but there is a box for donations on the left of the stone archway at the entrance; as you pass, please take a pebble from the pot and put it into the wooden bowl – that’s how visitors are counted.

The lane to the castle is opposite the Fire Station on Castle Parade  NP15 1SD, 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.
