Open Doors - Criccieth Castle Guided Tour

Criccieth Castle

Criccieth Castle

Take a tour with guide Deian ap Rhisiart and discover the secrets of the castle that was originally built by Llywelyn the Great.The castle changed hands regularly between the Welsh and the English; can you imagine how dangerous and unstable the medieval times were as war cast a constant shadow on the inhabitants. Step back in time as we follow in the footsteps of the Welsh soldiers that tried to capture the castle. Blood and dignity, passion and grandeur, all were prominent in the history of the thirteenth century. Then step into the shoes of the legendary Owain Glyndŵr’s generals as they capture and torch the castle. Along the way, experience the excitement, turmoil and destruction as Glyndŵr and his men embark on their national revolt. 

An hour’s tour exploring between the spectacular walls of Criccieth Castle.  

Tours at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.
