Visited Beaumaris as an afternoon activity whilst staying in Caernarfon recently. The castle is well preserved and offers great views of the local area. There is ease of access to the walls and the keep alike so anyone can explore the castle as if they were there when it was built. However, one downside we noticed when we went was... More

Castles are great, and as castles go, this one has a lot to offer. Classic moat arrangement and inner and outer walls. Everything you read about in your 'Idiot's guide to Castles'. There are some great long passage ways within the walls which are great to explore, and some of the towers are accessible. The views from the castle are... More

The setting is stunning with views over Llandudno & Puffin Island. You can traverse the castle's outer wall and view the inner chapel. My only criticism is that there were very few information boards around the site so you had to buy a guide in order to learn more about the history.

Well worth a visit. The castle is big compared with most (although perhaps not compared with some of the other castles in the area), and there is an outer wall and an inner wall, with a large grass courtyard in the centre. There is a lot to see and most of the rooms inside can be visitied although I think... More

My family and I has been to a number of castles around the UK and this one ranks up in my top five. The kids loved exploring to all the passage ways and visiting every single room. The walk along the outer curtain wall was also great fun.

We had a great few hours here for a fiver but i have been before with my 3 year old and it was hell, there is nothing to do for them it is after all a medieval castle a soft play area would somewhat take away from the experience. Its a castle, enjoy the oldness and the views from the... More

We took our 6 and 1 year olds to the castle and both really enjoyed looking around and playing. Good value admission price. Wish we'd have taken a picnic as there is a large grassy area inside the castle.

Nicely kept castle with lovely views and well kept grounds, our kids of 6,9.15 enjoyed walking around in the castle with multiple levels and being able to walk around the top of the walls, like someone else has said it's a shame about there being no toilets only the ones you have to pay for down the road but only...

this castle was one that was actually never finished. It is still very impressive. Lovely walk around. Nice enclosed gardens. Excellent views from the top. We have 5 year old and a 2 year old, it can be quite challenging for very young children and impossible for buggies to get up and down the levels. Downside is you have to... More
