North Wales Medieval Castles


The North Wales Medieval Castles are amongst the best preserved and impressive Medieval buildings in all of Europe! Built from 1276 onwards by Edward I, the impressive and war-like King of England, built these monuments to keep unruly Welsh princes in order and subdue the local population.

Castles at Caernarfon, Conwy, Harlech and Beaumaris formed a ‘Ring of Iron’ that left the occupied people in no doubt as to the strength of their new ruler. Each one is unique, earning them ‘World Heritage Site’ status and during your visit you will be transported back to a time of noble lords, medieval princes and the machinations of power as each castle tells its own story throughout the centuries.

Your tour guide will help you to decide which North Wales Medieval Castles suits your interest best and will combine your visit with the sights, sounds and tastes of local towns, quaint villages and of course the Snowdonia National Park.

This day could be seeing one Castle and touring Snowdonia or a day of four Castles and a Welsh pub lunch, however you want to tailor the tour our expert guide will maximise your time seeing these wonderful Castles in North Wales. If we had to choose one Castle though it would be Conwy Castle!
