My review is much the same as most of the others. This is a great example of this type of castle in an amazing setting. We were lucky to visit on a clear day. The Menai Strait was an open stretch of blue water and the snow capped mountains of Snowdonia were an amazing backdrop. It gave a real sense... More

We arrived 20mins before closing and was still expected to pay the full price but once we were through the gates and in the grounds, the beauty of the castle took that complaint away :) the moat around the castle is stunning and as soon as we walked over the bridge to enter inside, little words were spoken as I...

The car park was close by and the castle itself was fascinating. Plenty to see and read about. Great views from the walls.

We decided on impulse to visit the castle quite late in the afternoon on December 30th, and the curator kindly extended the closing time for another 15 minutes, thus giving us time to see this splendid mediaeval building without feeling rushed. We really enjoyed the wall walks and internal passages leading to the Chapel. A nice surprise awaited us there... More

Located on Anglesey over the Menai bridge and go north east up the coast. Built by Edward 1st to keep the misbehaving Welsh under control. This Castle is one of the last Edward 1st Castles, built as a bit of an afterthought. Its stands out -built of a dark stone. Its all ruins but you could go along some of... More

North Wales has incredible castles in abundance. Whilst not as big as Caernarfon castle, Beaumaris castle still provides it's own special features with a moat ond open spaces inside. The castle's also located in one of my favourite villages in the world, and right on my doorstep!

Being members of English Heritage and staying near Beaumaris we decided to visit the castle. Spectacular views from the walls and interesting features scattered around the castle. Small book and gift shop. Toilets nearby!

A very well preserved building in the open air so little shelter if it rains.Concessions offered to various groups eg over 60's.there are no toilets so this might put families with young children off. It would be useful to buy the guide book as not all the parts are labelled.a small exhibition was set out well and informative.a wonderful setting... More
