We were staying nearby so walked over one sunny evening. Site is open all the time and is an old defensive tower of the Princes of Gwynedd, now within woodland. Not a lot to see but good views of the lakes and Snowdon foothills, plus the Dinorwic Power station
This is just by the slate museum and is easy to miss. We go hear often as the kids enjoy going. The walk is nice and not overly steep. The views are fantastic and you get a real sense of the past. The information boards are well worth reading. This is Free to visit
A hiddden gem, that if you have a spare hour then go. After a short walk you come to stunning views at the top of the hill. After making your way to the top of the castle you can see even more a Padarn Lake. Worth a short walk and it's free.
Caernarfon castle draws a great deal of visitors but, for me, this exquisite tower is perfection. It is utterly amazing and I have visited numerous times and the setting and tower itself are utterly spectacular, no matter what the weather.
Walking from High Street it took just half an hour to do the round trip including photos. Views impressive but if I had not gone it would not have been missed.
Dolbadarn Castle is now a free visit and is well worth it. It is situated in a lovely place and the all-round scenery is magnificent. However, it does need a little TLC as it looks as if it isn't getting any attention. The payment kiosk is boarded up and the grounds outside the castle's perimeter fence have become overgrown. It... 更多
With the majority of castles in wales being built by the English, it is often forgotten that the Welsh Princes themselves built castles.This Castle is in an amazing location opposite the lake, and whilst it is small and will not take long to explore, it is well worth stopping. I recommend you buy the guidebook (available from other Cadw properties)... 更多
Could have done with some more signpost and info panels. I am sure that the castle had an impressive history, but it was not obvious to the visitor (me!).
A free site to visit. Great views of the lake and mountains. Pity there is no information on the place. ( Maybe there is but we didn't find any on site).
Passing through the region on a wet day and decided to stop in for a look - Incredible! I wish I could be here when it is clear! The mountain valley is beautiful,and the castle tower is so beautifully shaped. Let the imagination run....
Interesting and a look back in time there are information boards telling you about the history and great views of the two lakes one of the lake is pumped up the mountain and then used to generate electricity.
After a short walk up a hill you come across this fantastic little "castle" on a mound, over looking the lakes and mountain back drop. You can really take your mind back hundreds of years and picture what the area was like when this place was alleged to have been a prison. Great views from the castle offer a fantastic... 更多
The path up to the castle is a bit rough, as you'd expect, we managed with a buggy so its not too bad. There is plenty of room at the top of the hill for the kids to run about, just keep them away from the steep edges. The Castle has a spiral stair case in the walls leading half... 更多
After driving past this magical-looking old relic of a castle for over 4 decades I finally explored it during a day visit to Llanberis. Free entry, with beautiful views of Llyn Padarn and the surrounding Snowdonia range of mountains, it's a quick but well worth-while visit. Viewed from the far side of the lake, by the Welsh Slate Museum, even... 更多
