Harlech Castle

Harlech Castle enters the record books for the longest siege in UK history; the song "Men of Harlech" is inspired; Queen Margaret of Anjou shelters within the mighty walls ... all this during the War of the Roses. 

Step back in time and discover what life was truly like in the 1460s, when members of the Wythe Retinue take you back to the War of the Roses.
