An interesting castle - lots of corridors and little rooms to explore. At the time of our visit there were gulls nesting all along the tops of the castle and pigeons nesting in various openings elsewhere - we spent the whole time spotting nests and baby birds!

We visited Beaumaris Castle in April and were very happy with our visit. Whilst it might not have huge towers to climb like some of the other castles in Northern Wales, Beaumaris is such a large castle, it is a delight to explore as there are many corridors and turrets dotted all around. It's a very picturesque castle and the scenery is lovely for those interested in photography.

There is a car park located about 5 minutes walk away (if that) which only cost a couple of pounds to use. Definitely worth visiting and an attraction that can appeal to everyone.

Went to the castle after promising my son we would and it was great. The man on reception was very friendly and even lent us an umbrella. A good couple of hours spent in the castle. Would highly recommend. Reasonable admission as well.

Lovely place to visit. Loads of nooks and crannies to investigate, would be great for with kids! The gift shop is reasonably priced too.

One of the larger castles around the area but relatively well preserved for something thats been around since 1295. Do visit this wonderful historical site.
