Published 1st Mar 2021
There are few places more magical and mesmerising than castles. Steeped in history, mystery and legend, castles bring the past to life and are a wonderful way to immerse yourself in the land’s culture.

Bosting over 600 castles, it is no surprise that Wales is a favourite for castle lovers everywhere. Here are our top three Welsh castles that deserve top spots on your post-lockdown bucket list.

Caerphilly Castle 

Caerphilly is the largest castle in Wales. This colossal structure was erected in the 13th century. Explorers can brave Gilbert's Maze and marvel at the incredible Leaning Tower.

Conwy Castle 

Set on the backdrop of the might Snowdonia, Conwy Castle is an awe-inspiring fortress. Built in just 4 years over 700 years ago, on King Edwards I’s orders,  visitors can walk the entire circuit of the battlements.    

Caernarfon Castle 

Widely recognised as one of the finest building of the middle ages, Caernarfon Castle is a magnificent structure that took a whopping 47 years to build. The Royal fortress-castle sits proudy on the banks of the River Seiont.
