‪We walked from Montgomery town up a steep hill behing the town hall to the castle. There's a car park at the top so you can drive up too. Free entry as There's no facilities just the castle and a few information boards. Despite this it's a well maintained site and has fantastic views of the surroundings (no wonder the spot was chosen for a fortification!) We spent about 20mins here walking around Reading the boards and imagining castle life!! We walked back down the hill via the terrace and came out by the bookshop.‬

‪Nice castle ruins, with spectacular views of the welsh boarders. Quite high up, with limited road access, so you'll want to park at the bottom and walk up.‬

‪The ruins themselves are worth a look at if you're in the area. They aren't extensive but they're free to visit. I would rather pay and have a bit of 'room' information. The whole experience not helped by the weather but as the reviewer below rightly noted, the ludicrous attitude of not allowing dogs outside spoiled it anyway. Why so precious? We visit many castles and ruins and I totally accept dogs not being allowed inside but on grass between stones (albeit historically significant ones) ! Absolute nonsense. Also if this is your policy tell us at the front gate because we rolled up too late to enter and returned to visit and weren't making an informed decision. We were told by an unwelcoming gentleman who gestured rudely and slammed the gate. I don't know if this is a Welsh 'thing' because we also had it at a garden centre and a walking cafe. Whoever is responsible needs a head wobble. So my partner didn't come in. And on the way out a woman came in with 2 labradors. I hope she was a rebel and not affiliated to the castle! ‬

‪Lovely English castle that doesn't get the recognition that it deserves.
There is plenty left to see and the setting is outstanding if you go with the kids take a picnic there are plenty of areas to sit and enjoy the view whilst having a bite.‬

‪Montgomery is a picturesque hill town with its castle high on a rock above it. You can drive to the castle, where there is a car park adjacent to it, or you can park in the town and walk up a steep lane (not suitable for vehicles) to the castle. I chose to walk up - it was quite a climb but well worth it. The castle is a ruin, with no facilities, admission is free. It's peaceful and the views are amazing. There is enough left of the stonework and earthworks to understand what the castle was like - this is assisted by information boards. ‬

‪Visited in summer 2020, when I had my Shropshire vacation. We can park near the castle, but we have to find the narrow road lead up to the hill. Because I didn't find it, I parked in the village at the bottom of the hill and walked up, it wasn't the easiest. At the ruins there is no toilet or cafe, so please be prepared for this, however, there are plenty cafes, restaurant, tea room in the village. Nice history of ruins, easy to walk around, few information plate and 1 bench. Nice view and beauty spot, but not recommended to wheelchair users or baby buggies.‬

‪Driving back from Snowdonia, stopped off in the middle of no where at Montgomery Castle ruins - stunning location perched high on a rocky outcrop.
Only issue was the car park wasn't unlocked until 10am - even though its free to visit.

‪Border disputes between neighbours are often difficult. When they involve an English King with an inevitable sense of entitlement and a Welsh Prince whose mountainous realm in the top left hand corner of Wales was feeling a bit cramped, squabbling over who owned what is inevitable.

Henry III was used to getting elaborate presents. In 1216, aged 9, his father Bad King John, managed to give himself a dose of dysentery and died leaving little Henry the throne of England and a tiny bit of France. Seven years later, on Henry’s 16th birthday, serial border castle rebuilder Hubert de Burgh (Skenfrith, Grosmont and White castles are all his work too) decided to rebuild Henry a new castle just inside Wales at Montgomery (named after Roger de Montgomery, a pal of William the Conqueror. Roger had been given the land around here as a reward for helping out in the conquering and had built the original motte and bailey castle nearby)

Llywelyn ab Iowerth, Prince of Gwynedd, “The Great” to his friends, had already conducted a successful “special military operation” in neighbouring Powys and now had his eyes set on a slice of the western edge of England. Montgomery castle was one of many built in the Welsh Marches intended to prevent Llywelyn from needing to buy bigger boots; in this case the castle defended a strategically important crossing point on the river Severn. In this it was largely successful although Llywelyn had a couple of stabs at making it less so.

Over the centuries the castle has passed through a number of hands, some Royal (Henry III, Edward I), some not. It’s been remodelled, attacked, ignored, restored and eventually destroyed but has always been at heart of everything in this now peaceful part of the Severn valley, including a mysterious death.

On New Years Day 1288 widow Maud Vras ventured to the castle in search of William of St Albans, assistant constable of the castle, to ask for the return of her favourite saucepan. History does not record how William came to be in possession of her saucepan but it does tell how Maud was mysteriously struck on the head by a large stone as she passed through the gate passage to the inner ward. A blow that proved ultimately fatal. It took 9 years for Maud’s daughter, Mabel to point the finger at William. An inquest was held at which the jury found William innocent of the murder of Maud after he offered the perfectly reasonable defence that the rock that had struck the fatal blow had fallen through the portcullis slot from the room above when he had enthusiastically swished the new cloak his tailors had just presented him with. No one knows what became of the saucepan.

The castle today is one of those impressively sited ruins that Cromwell knocked about a bit after the civil war. The remains stand on a rocky bluff high above the town. The well, which was fenced off during our visit, is a particularly impressive feat of 13th century engineering being 64 meters deep - although they could have saved about 10 meters of effort by starting to dig about 6 feet to the left. The views on all sides are spectacular and highly visible because much of what remains of the castle is little more than footings. Much of what you can see beyond the walls is actually England rather than Wales, you could almost throw a stone over the border from here. The climb up from the town (if the small car park at castle height is full) is incredibly steep. Entry is free and on a sunny day it would make a grand spot for a picnic - as long as you take all you rubbish home with you. No dogs allowed (probably because people don’t take that home with them!)

Highly recommended for a pleasant afternoon’s pootle in the glorious Welsh Marches. Combine with a visit to nearby Dolforwyn to get a glimpse of the border dispute from the Welsh perspective.‬

‪We had not read much about Montgomery but we had a great time. Parking is free, entrance to the castle and grounds is free. The town itself is full of history and a beautiful place. And then there is the castle. It's a steep walk but definitely worth it. It is beautifully kept. The information boards are interesting without being history overload. The views are breathtaking. Definitely worth a visit.‬
