  • Lovely castle and brilliant when lit up at night, don't think it's worth 5 quid to get in but if you go a bit thurther down the wall past the place you pay you can climb the wall, get past all the spi...  more »
  • Quite an interesting visit there considering it is an ancient ruin by the sea. May be a bit pricey if you are looking to visit a place with lots of things to see. The castle allows you to climb up hig...  more »
  • I found our visit very interesting and there are signs dotted around the site with information and facts. It's not very big and will only take a short time to look around. Nice modern shop/cafe too. T...  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.
