Loads to explore, great views from the roof

I really liked this castle, there was plenty to see; I particularly liked the maze of tunnels. Great day out. No loo at present, so go before you enter.

This castle, directly adjacent to the main street of the town is worth a visit if you have a spare hour. It's mostly run down, but there are long internal passages with a small chapel. there are steep stairs and relatively high battlements so it is unsuitable for children under 8. Good views of Beaumaris from the turrets.

We visited this castle on a rainy dreary day, and even then we were not dissapointed. First, the admission ticket is good for the full day, so stepping out for tea is possible. There are lots of nooks and crannies inside the walls, and walking on top of the walls is possible in some areas. It's easy to imagine, how... More

When we decided to visit this castle I wasn't aware that it is such a nice castle to visit. It has a very interesting structure and a history to match up with. It is trully worthwhile to visit, for children it could be a true fun as well.

Great place to spend few hours discovering different angles of this castle and its history. I was taken back in time imagining how this place looked at its best. It was a truly beautiful experience.

This castle is worth a visit. Very welcoming and reasonably priced. On the day that we visited there was a mobile van by the ticket office selling good coffee/hot chocolate. As soon as we came in we came across very informative historical enacters, we learned so much about the history of the place. A great space full of passages to... More

If castles interest you this is probably a must - claimed to be the most 'technically perfect in Britain' it gives a real sense of how castle architecture developed to improve defences. You get a feel for how it might have been to both attack and defend such a place. Great for children - lots of the walls can be... More

This is one of the best castles we have visited. Lots of passageways and rooms to explore. Beautiful filled moat and lovely grassy areas to sit and admire!
