History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The original castle was composed of an inner court within a high wall, reached through a walled court known as the Middle Ward, where the 17th century mansion stood. To the south are further outbuildings in a loosely defined Outer Ward.
It is mystifying that Montgomery Castle is not better known. The site is superb, and the ruins are extensive. The town of Montgomery is well worth exploring; there are numerous timber-framed buildings clustered around an attractive market place, and it is only a short - though steep - stroll from the market place to the castle.
