Impressive castle that could have been so great if it was finished originally. So much to see and experience, imagine. How it was and could have been. imagine the grandeur and impressiveness of the building.

he good thing about this castle is that there is lots of it remaining that can be explored. Lots of information and the views from the top of the castle views are worth the entry fee alone. A must visit.

Visited the castle whilst staying on Anglesey with hubby & 2 children aged 11 & 7. Great castle for exploring, lots of winding staircases and corridors to explore. Lovely views as we walked around the top of the castle.Inside the castle there was tents with displays and people explaining what life was like living in the castle. Great, educational experience

My 2 children (6 years old) loved this castle! With it's 'proper' moat and lots of winding staircases and corridors to explore it kept them interested for a good couple of hours! It was simply beautiful too!

Beaumaris is interesting in its design, with two concentric rings, and of course, a lovely moat! There's not much in the castle, though you can walk into the walls and up to the top of them. If you only have time for one of King Edward's castles, though, I would recommend Caernarfon or Conwy over this one, since the others... More

Family day out to visit the castle whilst in the area. We had a great morning, sun was shining, picturesque castle, lots of photos taken and room for the kids to run around and explore. Followed this with lunch and afternoon at the butterfly place nearby, reviewed separately. A great day out.

If you like historical buildings and are not expecting any 'stately room' presentations, then this is a great place to visit, for a ridiculously low cost. Great views and a real link with history, going right back to Edward 1st.
