Beaumaris Castle, Beaumaris

#1 of 20 in Historic Sites in Anglesey
Must see · World heritage site · Castle · Landmark
A concentrically planned castle where walls are built around walls, Beaumaris Castle was the ideal example of military engineering during Edward I's reign. UNESCO praised the castle’s architecture for its masonry and proportions, although the structure was never completed. Wander between walls and ramparts as you explore the 12 towers sectioning off the outer wall, and six towers partitioning the inner. The castle also provides views over the nearby sea.

  • Great castle to visit and very picturesque with its moat. On sunny days the castle reflects well in the water. Once inside there are plenty of passages inside the castle walls to explore and walkways on top of the castle battlements and walls. Good views of the surrounding countryside from the top of the castle. Really enjoyed thus visit, would highly recommend. Toilets inside castle. Shop with souvenirs.
  • Beautiful and architecturally important castle with a chapel and walkways in the ways still accessible. Lovely place with great views.... Less things for smaller kids but in holiday times there are often events and activities .
