Owner description: After all these years Caernarfon’s immense strength remains undimmed. A brute of a fortress. Caernarfon Castle’s pumped-up appearance is unashamedly muscle-bound and intimidating. Picking a fight with this massive structure would have been a daunting prospect. By throwing his weight around in stone, King Edward I created what is surely one of the most impressive of Wales’s castles. Worthy of World Heritage status no less.

Caernarfon Castle itself is quite interesting but the jewel in the crown is the Royal Welsh Fusiliers Regimental Museum within it which is included in the price. It is very well laid out and most informative. It really brings home the terrible experiences most of these soldiers both in ancient times up to the present day have had to contend with.The beauty of it is you can spend as long as you like in the castle and museum go out into the town for refreshments and back in to complete your visit.

Firstly park your car on Aber foreshore road,its FREE and its just as close as the official carpark which charges £4.Walk over the footbridge and you are at the castle where Prince Charles was invested as the Prince of Wales

We visited Caernarfon Castle at half term. The £15 entry for a family was very good value for money. We were in the castle for at least 4 hours & had a great time up & down the stairs on to the walls - aching legs after! The information film was great & gave plenty of information about the castle & the others in the area. We will definitely visit it again. If you visit - and I recommend that you do - make sure you're wearing hiking boots or trainers so that you can get up & down the steps safely

We visited after taking the narrow gauge railway to Caernarfon and spent a very enjoyable few hours wandering the walls of this well preserved ancient castle.The tickets at £15 a family are very well priced and there was lots to see in the museums of the Welsh Fusiliers and rooms showing details of the investiture of Prince Charles as Prince of Wales
There are come fantastic views over the town from the walls and it is well worth a visit
It is probably best suited for older children and there are quite a few steps to get to the top,of the walls which are not easy for either very young or old legs

Perhaps it's possible to say that once you've been inside one Medieval Castle you've been in them all, but... this castle has NO interior structure left. Yes - you can wander the passages of the outer walls (curtain wall) and even up onto the battlements and towers but other than that the only thing of interest is the Museum to The Welsh Fusiliers! It's where Prince Charles was "Crowned" as The Prince of Wales with it's slate plinth marking the spot, but... that's (not very interesting) modern history!
