I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS EXPERIENCE! If you are going to go to any castle remnants in Europe, this should definitely be in your top list. It is very much in tact, so I was able to get some amazing panoramic shots and a 360 degree video by standing in the middle of the castle. There are so many nooks and... More

Beaumaris castle is one of the classic concentric castles and made more interesting by both its relative completeness and access from the sea. If you like castles, you'll like this...

It's a small castle, still has it water moat outside with a family of swans on it! Nice to have a wander about for an hour good view. Toilets are outside the castle, parking £5 unlimited on the field at the back! They do puffin cruise trips near the ice cream kiosk which I would like to do if I... More

Walking on top of the walls of the castle offers some spectacular views and there is information on the building of the castle as you explore

A typical Welsh castle with an excellent exhibition telling the story of Edward 1's campaign in easy to understand terms. It was good to be able to climb and walk round the walls for fantastic views on a lovely day.

Although on the face of it there isn't a lot to do here, we spent a couple of hours wandering the rooms and walls of this ruined castle (which was apparently never finished) and learned about the history from the guidebook. There is also a nice grassed area in the centre where we sat for a while, and lovely swans... More

This is a very nice castle ruin and if you have been an English Heritage member for over a year you get free admission (half price if less than a year) so take you card with you if you are visiting Wales. The castle is more compleat than many of the English Heritage and you can walk on some of... More

Stopped in Beaumaris while driving around Anglesey. Road here is quite scenic and town is very picturesque. The main attraction however is the well preserved and nicely maintained castle. Parking is to the rear of the castle and they had plenty of spaces. The castle itself is surrounded by a moat and is very close to the sea. Entrance fee... More
