A concentrically planned castle where walls are built around walls, Beaumaris Castle was the ideal example of military engineering during Edward I's reign. UNESCO praised the castle’s architecture for its masonry and proportions, although the structure was never completed. Wander between walls and ramparts as you explore the 12 towers sectioning off the outer wall, and six towers partitioning the inner. The castle also provides views over the nearby sea. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Beaumaris fast, fun, and easy.

Positioned as the castle never built, the story behind this is quite interesting. It's more built than not without being a ruin with a half moat and very photogenic. Dogs are allowed on the ground...

Absolutely love Beaumaris Castle. My favourite of the castles in North Wales, stunning flowing curved towers. Idyllic setting with incredible views. The chapel has the most amazing acoustics. Gift shop could be a bit better. Public toilets 1 minute walk from main entrance. Loads of good pubs and fish and chip shops within a couple of minutes walk.
A must see castle. This was a great visit as you're able to still explore a large proportion of the castle both inside and out. There are some really nice views from the walls of the castle. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and there's a nice little gift shop. The entry price for an adult was £8.30 and I'd say it was good value for money, we spent at least 2 hours exploring. The tickets are day tickets so you can come and go from the castle as you please.
