Goodrich Castle and Visitor Centre

Goodrich Castle stands majestically on a wooded hill commanding the passage of the River Wye into the picturesque valley of Symonds Yat.
 
The castle was begun in the late 11th century, by the English thegn (regional king) Godric who gave it his name. The visitor centre features a small exhibition which explores life at the castle from its origins in the late 11th century until its dramatic fall in 1646, and includes Civil War artefacts found at the site.
 
A smart new cafe has lovely views of the picturesque surroundings, and serves a fine selection of light refreshments made from locally sourced Herefordshire ingredients.
 
A number of historically themed events are held at the castle throughout the year, please follow the Goodrich Castle weblink below for further details.
