It is a fantastic place to visit and it's free what more would you want great bit of history
You can walk around the whole castle and grounds and get a good feel of what it might have been like to live there

No good for hide and seek
lis 2020 • Znajomi
Not very well built. Most of it has fallen down which makes me question the saying "they don't build them like they used to"
It was difficult to get to also. For some reason they built a big hill before they built the castle and then plonked the castle on top, making it a struggle to get up there. Must have been a nightmare to carry their shopping up.
The benches all face away from the castle and now I have a crick in my neck from straining to look at it.
To top it all off, there was no roof and no sign of a king or queen anywhere (other than my mate Chris). Distinct lack of a gift shop really spoiled the experience.

Another great ruined border castle!
wrz 2020
After a pleasant stroll around the delightful old village of Clun we walked up to the ruined castle. A bit of a scramble took us up to the area of the keep from which there are wonderful views. A few helpful picture boards explain the history of this atmospheric place.

Impressive Ruin
wrz 2020 • Pary
An impressive ruin looked after by English Heritage.

Great views on a reasonably manageable short walk. There are steep slopes so decent shoes are advisable.

Free to enter. If you're in Clun, you should visit!

Interesting free attraction
wrz 2020 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
This castle is free to visit, which is admirable, although a fee and site management might have dissuaded the teenagers running around, shouting, climbing the crumbling remnants and breaking pieces off. Hopefully most times visiting it is a quieter experience

Well worth a visit
wrz 2020
Yet another of the fantastic free-to-enter English Heritage attractions in the area south of Shrewsbury. Easy to find in the small town of Clun, there is a small free carpark but even after the scools reopened it was one-in one-out throughout our visit.

I'd suggest you walk around the motte before climbing up, it gives you a better perspective on it's position. Note the odd position of the keep into the side of the motte; the EH signboards say this was part was built as a status symbol by the owners after the Welsh border scurmishes ended and as their own wealth grew with the inheritance of Arundle Castle and many estates.

Mottes are fairly common but less so is to look down from there and see the bailey element so clearly laid out, below the main castle but just above the river crossing point. (The small bridge you probably crossed to reach the carpark is a 14C packhorse bridge only just surviving its modern use as a main road).

In the other direction you can clearly see some earthworks in the fields beyond that were the castle gardens in its 13C and 14C life. Sadly not open as on private land but probably best appreciated from the height of the castle and with the aid of the EH information board.

The place has several benches for a rest or picnic - three on the bailey alone with views over the river and of the Norman tower of Clun church plus several at the car park/bridge. And do try the local ice cream from the shop by the bridge, I had a really good whiskey cream and my wife's chocolate orange was the orangiest ice cream I've ever tasted.

Great views
lip 2020 • Dla rodziny
Fabulous views from the castle you can see for miles! It’s worth a trek down the hill through the undergrowth to get the best photos of the castle.
Lovely Village with some nice pubs and Cafe’s.
Definitely worth a visit.

A Castle Ruin with Views
lip 2020 • Dla rodziny
We started our tour around with a visit to Clun Castle and were not disappointed. The castle can be approached from the car park near the bridge in the village, or from the Bishop’s Castle road. This is an easier route for those less able. The castle is a ruin and was, even before the Civil War. For all that, it is well worth the visit. The views out are lovely and it has enough to fire the imagination. Lovely little Crown Bowls lawn nearby was interesting. This monument is free to look around and also to take the dog. Plenty of walks radiate out. Refreshments in Clun and a pleasant sit by the river with a tub of ice cream.

A damp visit.
lis 2019 • Znajomi
We recently stayed in Bicton. We were looking forward to visiting Clun Castle.
Sadly the recent wet weather prevented us from getting near to the castle. There does not appear to be any “suitable” footpaths. The only access was via very wet, waterlogged fields. I do understand the need in keeping the natural beauty of this sites. But it was a shame to have missed visiting the castle. Hopefully we will return another time when the ground is less saturated.

Otherwise the area has parking, toilets and nearby tea rooms.
