Built on the spot of an earlier earthwork and timber castle, the current structures date from the 13th century.
The castle has two wards – an outer ward which surrounds the eastern half of the castle and an moat surrounding the inner ward and its structures.
Sitting on top of a hill near the village of Llantilio Crossenny, the castle commands a great postition and must have dominated the landscape in its original white cladding.
Today there is a small gift shop at the entrance and the outer ward is a great spot for picnics.
Should a pub lunch be in order before of after a visit to White Castle, head to the Walnut Tree on the B4521 towards Abergavenny for fine dining, or for a more casual affair visit the Crown & Sceptre on Hereford Road in Abergavenny – a true locals pub.
