Penhow Castle, fully restored, was, at first, a medieval keep. Then a hall block was added in the 15th century, and later a Stuart manor home. There are a 13th century curtain wall and a 12th century keep tower and ramparts on view. Rooms on the audio tour include the Norman bedroom, a 15th century great hall, a minstrels' gallery, a Tudor moat room, a Charles II panelled dining room, an 18th century kitchen and a Victorian housekeeper's room.
