“Interesting, beautifully kept”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

There were other castles with better signage or were larger, etc. But this was our first in Wales and we were impressed. Grounds are very well kept, Many areas of the castle were open for exploration. We encourage visitors to get the pass (Explorer pass?) that allows one to visit multiple castles over the course of several days.

“Good adventure.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

The visit to the castle is in beautiful well tended grounds and it has a Moat!!!
Our visit was on a very cold, very windy October day but didn't spend much time outside as there are so many passages and little rooms/spaces to investigate.
We did venture up onto the outer battlements, need to be careful as some of the stairs are quite small and narrow, the views are awesome and well worth the climb.
Warm coats and walking boots recommended this time of year and well worth the time we spent there.

“Beaumaris castle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

I love castles and this one was quite well preserved, the display inside the castle on Edward 1's castles and castle design was adequate I would have liked more information on the admission leaflet on the history and travails of Beaumaris castle

“Nice castle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013


Nice castle to explore.
Very little information about the castle on site but the main point of interest is that the castle was unfinished. Worth climbing up the towers for the wonderful views over the menai strait.
Cheap car park next to the castle. Worth a visit if you have a spare hour or so.

“Go the extra mile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Worth traveling over the bridge and down the narrow winding road. A water filled moat and interiors to explore with many photo opportunities.
