We visited more than one time and we always love it. The green grass, the lift-bridge . . absolute cracker of a castle with classic proportions and perfect symmetry. The last hurrah of Edward I’s massive building programme in north Wales… just a shame he never got round to finishing it! We love it.

Take the time to take a good look round this castle. The dock and Barbican are marvellous. The angled entry, murder holes, and multiple portcullises give you a real feel for the design. Best concentric castle I have visited. If you are going in wet weather, wear Wellington boots as there are some muddy areas. Not to be missed.

Brilliant! Lovely friendly staff on a beautiful afternoon in Beaumaris. Truly felt like we were stepping back in time.

Couldn't come to Beaumaris without looking at the castle. What's left is quite impressive, great moat with lots of swans gliding about, nearby parking, and Beaumaris itself is quite lovely.

We had a great morning here reading about , looking and feeling the history of the castle. Well worth the visit. The staff were helpful and took time to talk to us.

The town is probably seen in a couple of hours (we had lunch at The Bulkeley) but the castle should be the focal point, and you can be in and out in less than an hour. The castle was never finished but enough was built - and exists today - to get a sense of what was intended. If you're... More

Not much to see. You won't need more than half an hour to see the whole thing. It could do with having more in depth information about the history of the castle & surrounding settlement.

even though this is only half a castle ( the top half was never built) one can feel like a knight of old when squeezing down the narrow passages, climbing the tortuous stairs or admiring the views.. Be sure to look after the children and obey the warning signs.

Well presented and explained with enough information on boards around the castle. Has the advantage of not being remodelled overtime so layout is clear.

Beaumaris is a beautiful place to visit. It is a quaint town lovely and full of Victorian charm. We visited in March and had a fantastic weekend.
