Caernarfon Castle

A majestic monster of a castle. The incredible size of this World Heritage site mirrors the fortune spent on it by Edward I.

Explore the maze of winding wall-passages which link the castle’s massive towers. Spot the difference at Caernarfon – here the eight huge towers are angular instead of round. Why? Probably because Edward was copying the Romans.

Climb the mighty Eagle Tower and venture to the topmost turret. From here you can see the historic town of Caernarfon and across the Menai Strait to Anglesey. The lure of water and easy sea access proved irresistible to Edward.
