Beaumaris is often referred to as the most technically perfect castle in Britain. Kids will love exploring the hidden rooms, nooks and crannies and, until August 28th, they’ll have the chance to see Dwynwen and her baby dragons!
The walls of Conwy Castle are amongst the ﬁnest surviving medieval fortiﬁcations to be seen anywhere else in Britain. Climb the impressive towers and turrets and follow the Time Detectives Trail to find out how the Welsh captured the castle in the 15th century. Also, if you visit between August 29th 17th September, you’ll be able to see Dwynwen and her baby dragons!
The biggest castle in Wales is surrounded by a series of moats and watery islands. Climb to the rooftop of the huge east gatehouse and see if you can spot the rings of stone and water defences that made this castle so strong. Explore the dark passage known as the Braose Gallery and look out for the famous leaning tower! .
Kidwelly Castle is picture perfect – so much so that it provided the opening backdrop for Monty Python and the Holy Grail! It’s always a huge hit with the kids as it’s full to the brim with amazing hide and seek spots. Can you find the mysterious hidden hand print on one of the walls?
Overlooking the river Teifi, Cilgerran Castle is almost 800 years young. Take the wall-walk to truly appreciate the stunning views and the “long drop” is always a hit with the little ones!
St. David’s Bishop Palace
Even in ruins, St. David’s Bishop Palace still shows signs of it’s former grandeur. See if you can spot the stone carvings of human heads and the impressive wheel window.
Beautifully preserved, Chepstow Castle is a history lesson in stone! Great views from top, beautiful grounds and towers and turrets to climb – it ticks all the boxes. Don’t forget to check out the 800 year old wooden doors – the oldest in Europe!
Raglan was one of the last medieval castles to be built in England and Wales. Explore the Great Tower on its moated island and discover the newly restored undercroft beneath the castle. Built for show rather than with battle in mind, Raglan really does have the wow factor.
