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 was the best castle we've visited it was so set up for children, our toddlers loved banging the metal objects and building a staircase, as well as a playing with a softplay fort in the mud :-) an absolute adventure. The building is stunning with so many nooks to explore we would happily go back. Don't forget 20p for the local toilets and there's a lovely cafe next door.
  • Ok, I gave this 4* but for one reason which I will get on too. The castle itself is not the biggest but is just as interesting as many in the area and is reasonably priced compared to say Conwy. It is a nice location/town. On the day we arrived they had tricked the castle out with tents and performances etc, kids loved it. All fantastic and the people involved worked hard to make it good. Walking along the internal tunnel of the wall to the west like everyone else and spotted ears?! Closer inspection it was a roosting bat maybe 1.5 foot above us. Defiantly worth a visit, check the website for when they have a theme day on, it makes all the difference. If the themed event was not on its still worth a visit if your in the area.
  • A beautiful castle in the heart of town with the view of the sea from the top towers. We have enjoyed a demonstration of medieval fights and a presentation done by the students from the local Bangor university in the castle's courtyard. If you love castles Iike I do,it's a must. The kids had enjoyed the playground outside the castle and collecting sea shells on the beach. A great tip for dinner, pop in to the local Neptune's chip and fish restaurant. We had enjoyed it sitting on a bench gazing at the sea. We will definitely be coming back again.
  • Visited here on a 3 day trip around North Wales. Beautiful castle and maintained really well. Great staff, friendly and welcoming and also very helpful, informing us of a pass for other venues in case we were visiting those also. We said no thankyou and were told if we change our mind he would change it on the way out. Cost was £6pp, which wasn't too bad as we spent over an hour roaming around the grounds and different levels of the castle. Really enjoyed it and would recommend it too anyone if you like history. Took some lovely photos of the castle and also of the seagulls and their young that inundate the top.
  • The largest castle that was never completed, far larger than it looks from the outside. Stout footwear is advisable to get the best out of your visit.
