Beaumaris Castle

Beaumaris Castle (Castle Street, Beaumaris, Isle of Anglesey) – located 185 miles (4 ½ hour drive) northwest of Cardiff, this castle in north Wales is part of the network of fortifications that England’s King Edward I built in order to maintain English rule over Wales. Construction of this castle was never completed. Nevertheless, it has at least four lines of fortifications, and it actually has a water-filled moat surrounding it. Its proximity to the sea allowed it to receive supplies directly from ships docked nearby. Admission: £4.50 (adult), £3.40 (reduced – seniors), £13.50 (family – two adults and up to 3 children under 16 years). Call for further info, including hours: +44 1248 810 361
