There are two dedicated accessible parking spaces on the roadside adjacent to the monument: Google maps view
There are two medium/large charging car parks within a few minutes’ walk (approx. 200 meters) of the castle entrance, both with accessible parking spaces.
The walk from these car parks is flat and even.
The visitor centre has automatic doors from the pavement and into the monument, with a short ramp on exit and is equipped with a low-profile admission desk.
The visitor centre is situated alongside the castle with a flat even walk to the outer ward, over a wide wooden bridge.
There are no toilets onsite, however there are free public toilets 50 meters flat and even walk from the castle visitor centre. The public toilets have baby changing and accessible facilities.
Dogs must be kept on leads at all times and non-assistance dogs must remain on the ground floor only.
Much of the castle can be seen from ground level, however all areas have a grass covering apart from the access from the outer ward to the inner ward, which is gravel. The grass is kept short throughout the year.
Access to the corridors within the castle is via various short, narrow staircases of around 10-15 steps, and there are some internal steps once you are inside. Whilst the towers at Beaumaris Castle are shorter than at other sites, there is still a considerable number of steps should you wish to experience the wall walks. The floor surfaces throughout the corridors and walk walks is uneven.
Handrails are present throughout the sites to aid navigation. Doorways within the corridors are often narrow.
