Very reasonably priced admission. Great day trip for families.You will need time to explore this castle, there are many areas to explore ! When we visited it had been raining, which was fine for us, but care needed to be taken as it was quite slippery.

We went to the castle with 3 children a 5yr old and 2 x 9 yr olds. All really enjoyed it. It's not one of the largest castles but there is still lots to see and walk around. It was reasonable in price compared to other castles we have visited. There isn't loads of information but it was still a... More

Saw this from the outside but it did look impressive and has a lovely 'green' moat! We didn't go in so cant add much more I'm afraid! One point is when we visited in July the pub opposite had a hideously load band playing outside which were a: pretty bad and b: spoilt the atmosphere of the area which is... More

As English Heritage members we got in free, however this would well be worth paying to look around. It has a lot to see and being able to walk around the external wall great. The interior passageways got my 11 year old boys imagination working and he thoroughly enjoyed it.The guide brochure was £5 but well laid out and loads... More

Wanted to go here, and specifically made the trip to see this. It does look good from the outside , and as stated earlier is actually unfinished , as it was meant to be much bigger in size, as with some other castles, a number of areas are sealed off but you do have access to the upper outer walls...

Had a great day wandering about the ruins of Beaumaris Castle, it was quite windy up on the ramparts, but the corridors were eery and exciting. The moat was a curious pea green colour, which was interesting. The shop wasn't overpriced either as I'd expected it might be, I was so pleasantly surprised by their fair prices I bought some...

We had a short trip to Bangor and we had a damp day to fill - we decided to visit the castle as the sun was trying to come out and really enjoyed it - it needs to be not raining as it's mainly out side but you can loose yourself for an hour or so imagining how life was... More

A great example of a coastal castle. With historical information to read and the opportunity to enjoy the views from the wall walks it's worth a visit while in Beaumaris.

The lady at the kiosk was lovely and friendly. The castle is a great place to explore with all its dark corridors and roof top walkways. Well preserved place. Well worth a visit and good value too
