The Three Castles - Wales

The Three Castles

The Three Castles Walk is a circular walking route around Skenfrith Castle, White Castle and Grosmont Castle with a distance of approximately 19 miles (30km).

This holiday can be taken as either 2 or 3 days in duration. Take your time and enjoy the unspoilt beauty of this interesting and relaxing walk.

Located in the beautiful Monmouthshire countryside on the border of England and Wales, the three Norman castles formed a line of defence known as The Marches, serving as a reminder of the turbulent history of the Welsh/English border area.

White Castle is the best preserved of the three ruins and was founded around 1075. There is traceable evidence that a castle existed in Skenfrith around 1160.

Grosmont Castle dates from around 1110.

All three castles were re-fortified in the 13th Century, when a Welsh uprising threatened. During the 15th century Owain Glyndwr’s men attacked Grosmont Castle, but were beaten back by the English Army.

Local interest

The Three Castles Walk takes you through a rural area of mixed farmland and the undulating landscapes of wooded hillsides and valleys of Monmouthshire. The diverse habitat makes the countryside area rich in wildlife, simply excellent for photography and fascinating historical interest.
