Hay Castle

Friday, June 23, 2023

Hay Castle is a medieval fortification and 17th-century mansion house. Originally constructed as part of the Norman invasion of Wales, the castle was designed as a ringwork overlooking the town in either the late-11th or early-12th centuries. Since 2011 it has been owned by Hay Castle Trust who have restored the property to form a centre for arts, literature and learning. Following the restoration, the castle opened to the public in May 2022.
