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.


The Humphreys family has decided to close the castle to general visitors.  However it will still be open to Usk Castle Friends and their guests. 

The castle ruins are in the gardens of a privately owned family home.

Visiting times

The Castle will generally be open on Sundays and Bank Holidays. The opening times are
10.30 am to 4.30 pm.
Entry is free to Usk Castle Friends and their families. Other visitors pay £4 per head.
Children are free.
Members of Usk Castle Friends wishing to visit at other times should contact the Castle on
