Roger de Lacy's  inner ward of c1087-95 is the best-preserved 11th century stone-walled court in Britain, with a tall gatehouse (later converted into a tower keep) and four square towers. Of the 12th century are the outer ward and a chapel with a very rare circular nave, and there are fine 14th century apartments built by Mortimer earls of March. The castle is impressively situated above the River Teme and was the seat of the Council of the Welsh Marches in the late 15th and 16th centuries, with extra buildings of those periods.
