  • £15 to visit a castle that despite its wonderful history has 4 information boards and nothing else other than your imagination. It is clearly an important historical monument but entrance should be fr...  more »
  • We visited with our young grandson. It was his first castle visit so he enjoyed it but as castles go it's nothing much. The views however are stunning. 10 quid for half hour visit ....bit expensive  more »

  • Lovely old castle sitting apun a hill on Criccieth seafront. Fantastic views of the bay from here. There's also an ice-cream shop and fish shop next to the castle. You can have a nice stroll around the small town and then down to the beach. If the sun's out it's brill.
  • Stunning views and extremely friendly staff. They were very entertaining with the children. Made it much easier for them picking the right souvenirs for them. Maybe a tad expensive but you are paying for upkeep of treasures :)
  • Great little Castle, staff were ok didn't hand out the information when we went in but we noticed others with it hopefully just an over sight but the lady wasn't very cheerful. The exhibition wasn't working correctly and there was no one interested in letting you know how it worked or how to carry out the tasks. Nice little walk around and great views.
  • Beautiful view of the whole town from top of the castle. From one side you can see the sea and from other side the whole town. I loved walking up the castle.
  • Criccieth Castle is a very small ruin. It only took us 45 minutes to stroll around it and that was generous! The visitors centre is nice with a few things to buy and there were toilets. We enjoyed the castle but having gone to Harlech Castle the day before we would recommend Harlech over Criccieth as there is so much more to see and do.
