It is a landmark site, a true testament to the varying fortunes of war. What a picture, what a view! Perched on a headland with the sea as its constant bedfellow. Its twin-towered gatehouse intimidates prospective attackers. So badly did the native...more

Criccieth Castle was built in the thirteenth century and you can still see how formidible it must have been. A place of power and grandeur. At the entrace to the site there is an interesting child friendly introduction and exhibition. Then you climb up the...More
Recently visited here whilst on a mini break in Criccieth.
Very pleasant lady on the desk. A big of a steep climb up, it well worth the effort. We were there on a lovely sunny day and the views from the castle are spectacular. Definitely...More

Well worth a visit, marvellous views in all directions - we were lucky we chose a bright day. It's free to visit on (I think!) Monday and Tuesday in the winter, you just go through the green gate to the left of the visitor centre,...More

The views from the top are stunning and there...More

Don't think any rooms at Tyn Y Gwynt have direct sea view, but very comfortable and welcoming b&b.

Penrhyndeudraeth Visit in April (1 Reply)
My wife and I will travel by rail to Penrhyndeudraeth in Apr, and have a few hours to visit the area, either HARLECH CASTLE, CRICCIETH CASTLE or PLAS BRONDANW GARDEN. If we could only visit one, which one would you recommend, and how would we reach it without a car? Thanks. Singing Raccoon

None of them. I'd either go to Port Meirion or a ride on the Ffestiniog Railway. The railway has a stop in Penryn, also a stop on the main network for you to visit Harlech castle or Criccieth castle.
