World Heritage Day

Caernarfon Castle

Caernarfon Castle

Come and celebrate our World Heritage status of over 30 years.

World Heritage Day Quest – Join us for a celebration of our World Heritage status. Be trained as a castle archer, defend the castle against attack from the rebel hordes and listen to tales of medieval battle and adventure. 

Beaumaris, Conwy, Caernarfon and Harlech castles, together with the fortifications surrounding the towns of Conwy and Caernarfon, have been collectively declared a World Heritage Site. These castles have been described as the finest examples of military architecture of their kind in Europe. At the time of building, their designs were ground breaking and their structural magnificence remains as imposing as ever.

Enjoy World Heritage Day at one of four castles. Whatever your view, each castle is a compelling story in stone.
