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.

Beaumaris Castle Reviews
The Castle is stunning, I couldn’t walk around it as am disabled but what a stunning looking Castle and well worth a visit. The seafront is stunning as well as the town. more »
Maybe not as spectacular as others, but a good honest castle 'in the raw', unsullied by too many attachments/extensions and therefore nice to appreciate the essential components. more »
Wow. Started going here as a kid and still love climbing over it. The views are breathtaking and there's even a playground if kids aren't interested. We had a great visit and then popped to Beau's tearooms to warm up. Thoroughly enjoyed every moment. It's fairly wheelchair friendly and there are benches in the main courtyard for rests.
Interesting place that's for sure, great for your inner explorer. Nooks and crannies everywhere... not the best for facilities however local area is filled with delights. Make time to enjoy a walk around Beaumaris itself if your visiting the castle. Look forward to returning with my camera when the light is better.
