Beaumaris Castle

Beaumaris Castle – a textbook model of a castle. No wonder it’s a World Heritage site. Begun in 1295 it’s a pity it was never fully completed before the king ran out of money…

Explore the four lines of defence that surround the heart of the castle, each one more formidable than the last. It took 450 masons, 400 quarrymen and over 2,000 skilled labourers to dig the moat and build the towering walls. Find the 15 separated major obstacles that faced any potential attacker.

Climb up the towers, creep through the dark wall-passages and venture on to the topmost ramparts to get stunning views across the Menai Strait to Snowdonia – citadel of the medieval Welsh princes.
