Britain’s Treasures

Caernarfon has been a place of strategic importance for many centuries, and nowhere is it more obvious than at the castle, Edward I’s daunting pet project

CAERNARFON CASTLE Gwynedd, North Wales


The castle was designed by a master architect, James of St George, and inspired by Edward’s crusades in the Middle East, as seen in these octagonal towers.

A FANTASY WORLD Caernarfon features in Welsh mythology as the magical location of a beautiful maiden, who the Emperor Maximus fell in love with in a dream


Just off the A487, Caernarfon Castle is easily visible in the town. The closest train station is Bangor, from where you can get a bus to the castle.


Open all year, admission hours are seasonal (closing at 4pm in winter and as late as 6pm in summer). An adult ticket costs £7.95.
