An interesting place to visit but would have been better if there was a tour guide. It wasn't clear what we were looking at other than the chapel.One of my grandchildren needed the toilet although I was told there weren't any.

Had a great time at Beaumaris Castle during our week on Anglesey. The medieval festival was on, so lots of opportunity for our boys (10 & 8) to engage In spear lessons etc. Lots of space for kids to run around. Walking atop the castle walls gave brilliant views over Beaumaris and across the Menai Straits to Snowdonia. Lovely. No... More

The Castle is great to roam around and find interesting nooks and crannies as you climb the winding staircases and head for the top of the Castle to walk around the walls and see the views of the town from above. Friendly staff and an overall enjoyable place to visit

Fantastic place with a wonderful history. Great space for the kids to run around. Lots of corridors and alcoves to explore. If your within 20 miles of this place you need to visit. Early morning was quiet. Great little play Park for the kids that surround the outside the castle with a small putting green.

Weather was not good, had been hail stones, rain etc The castle was not in a good state. Grassed areas were flooded, higher levels were not accessable, signs up saying due to conditions, not open. Before taking money, reception should have made visitors aware of this. Also, lots of litter on site, polystyrene takeaway containers etc. As a member of... More
