Three Castles Walk
Wales has more castles per square mile than any other country in Europe. One of the best ways to enjoy the castles and the countryside is to combine them in walks. A popular walk is the Three Castles Walk, an 18 mile way-marked circular route that starts at Skenrith Castle, passes through rolling countryside to White Castle, then to the ruins of Grosmont Castle. The castles lie near the border of Wales and England, and, together, they controlled the traffic in the land between the cliffs of the Wye Valley and the Black Mountains, part of the scenic countryside backdrop of this walk. It’s a strenuous walk to do in one day but can be broken into segments
Goodrich Castle - Herefordshire
Goodrich Castle is the most complete medieval castle in Britain, despite its turbulent history. Built on a rocky outcrop with exhilarating views over the Wye Valley, it gives a fascinating insight into fortress life seven centuries ago. There's a 12th century keep to explore, along with the chapel and a maze of small rooms and passageways. It's possible to climb the ramparts, peer through defensive 'murder holes' and, with the help of the free audio tour, learn all about the famous Civil War Siege. 'Roaring Meg' - the gun that destroyed the castle - is also there to be seen.
