Visit Castell Harlech  

Harlech Castle does not have a car park, however there is a small charging car parking with accessible spaces immediately adjacent to the castle entrance: Google Maps View

There are several medium and large charging car parks throughout the town. The castle is in the upper part of the town, and parking in the lower part of town will involve a very steep walk up to the castle (the road was in fact once in the Guinness World Record steepest street in the world).

The town can also be accessed by train, with the station in the lower part of the town. Bike storage available.

The journey from the adjacent car park into the visitor centre is flat and evenly paved.

The visitor centre has wide, automatic doors, low admissions desks, and an accessible exhibition space and café.

The visitor centre opens onto a modern bridge of around 25 meters that leads directly to the castle. The bridge has a gentle upwards slope.

The visitor centre toilets are equipped with modern accessible cubicles and baby changing facilities. 

Dogs must be kept on leads at all times and non-assistance dogs must stay on the ground floor only.

The castle can be enjoyed from ground level, however the site has multiple towers and wall walks that are accessed via steep, narrow, uneven stairs.
