Tour the castle that was originally built by Llywelyn the Great and reveal its secrets. The castle changed hands between the Welsh and the English regularly; can you imagine how dangerous and unstable the medieval times were as war cast a constant shadow on the inhabitants. Step back in time as we follow in the footsteps of the Welsh soldiers that tried to capture the castle. Blood and dignity, passion and grandeur, all were prominent in the history of the thirteenth century. Then step into the shoes of the legendary Owain Glyndŵr’s generals as they capture and torch the castle. Along the way, experience the excitement, turmoil and destruction as Glyndŵr and his men embark on their national revolt. An hour’s tour exploring behind Criccieth Castle’s walls.
The event will be a walking tour lasting an hour, starting at the welcome centre and guided between the walls of Criccieth Castle. There will be restricted mobility on the tour at times but it is suitable for families.
Tours at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.
