Open Doors - Caernarfon Castle

Caernarfon Castle

Caernarfon Castle

After all these years Caernarfon’s immense strength remains undimmed.

A brute of a fortress, Caernarfon Castle’s pumped-up appearance is unashamedly muscle-bound and intimidating. Picking a fight with this massive structure would have been a daunting prospect. By throwing his weight around in stone, King Edward I created what is surely one of the most impressive of Wales’s castles. Worthy of World Heritage status no less.

Tours at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.

Although admission to this event is free, it is a ticketed event. Tickets available on the website here
