Beaumaris Castle, Beaumaris

4.4
A concentrically planned castle where walls are built around walls, Beaumaris Castle was the ideal example of military engineering during Edward I's reign. UNESCO praised the castle’s architecture for its masonry and proportions, although the structure was never completed. Wander between walls and ramparts as you explore the 12 towers sectioning off the outer wall, and six towers partitioning the inner. The castle also provides views over the nearby sea.

    Beaumaris castle is beyond stunning. It is quite large, so you can end up spending a few hours admiring the views.  more »

  • Very educational for young and old. Appreciated the interactive additions inside the castle. Reasonably priced. Enjoyed that so much of castle was accessible. Information rations in boards gave real picture of what castle could have become.
  • Easy when on the level grass areas. Quiet a bit of climbing stairs with rope for the handrail. Once up on top of the walls, the views are rather grand. Can walk sections inside the Castle walls. Excellent staff and very helpful. Carparks not far away. No Tea Room on site. Shop in Entrance Foyer.
  • full of history , the most high tech castle of its time that was never finished. a great shame
  • Great castle.. Good location.. Well set up by the Welsh historic buildings organisation..
  • I love castles they are beautiful and this one is no exception. You must visit to enjoy my pics first hand for real. There were many interactive exhibits which is great for kids. You can also download an app on your phone if you're a cadw member to listen to the exhibits too...
