Brilliant Castle

Excellent easily accessible castle. So many toilets around the inner and outer defenses. Well worth a visit.

My son and husband loved this castle. The gift shop was very reasonably priced which was a pleasant surprise. The grounds are kept lovely. Could be improved by on site toilets as we had to leave to take the kids to the loo, then return. Overall worth a visit.

Love a castle with an actual moat - not very often you see these filled any more. The castle is great to ramble around and then it's lovely to pop into the town for a peruse of the streets.

During our large family get-together we visited Beaumaris Castle. The peaceful castle was soon under siege by our 7 children ages 1 - 7. They enjoyed it running around the wall ruins, climbing the tower stairs, 'looking for the enemy' from the top of the walls. They particularly enjoyed the accoustics of the chapel, we encouraged them to sing their... More

Such a pretty ruin. Great place to visit if you're on Anglesey. The winding staircases to the battlements were quite scary!

Came here this morning with a family of three adults and two children (2 yo & 7yo) paid around £20 for us all. Beautiful pictures and stunning views but not much for the price, although I didn't mind paying as I know it will help towards the upkeep of the castle. There isn't much to do once inside, and this... More

An interesting little castle, the experience made all the better by a free theatre performance in the castle grounds

Steeped in history with huge grounds to roam. Extremely clean and lots of detail on what your looking at. Only negative is gift shop is very small and interferes with way in and out so gets very full.

We have visited Beaumaris Castle twice now and both times have been great!! The Castle grounds are kept really neat and tidy. The tickets can be kept all day and you can come and go as long as you show you receipt. Will go again for sure!

Really good trip round the castle. Was fascinating to see all the little nooks and crannies. Took a bit of time to find the gargoyle and was pleased when we did see it in the end
