A brute of a fortress. Caernarfon Castle's pumped-up appearance is unashamedly muscle-bound and intimidating. Picking a fight with this massive structure would have been a daunting prospect. By throwing his weight around in stone, King Edward I created what is surely one of the most impressive of Welsh Castles. Worthy of World Heritage status no less!

Most castles are happy with round towers, not Caernarfon! Polygonal towers were the order of the day, with the Eagle Tower being the most impressive of these. You will also note the colour coded stones carefully arranged in bands.

Often parked here but never went in. Very close to the town centre and river. It is beautifully small yet charming with spiral staircases and a window of poppies. Quite emotional actually. Very educational and we enjoyed our visit. Best thing was under 5s go free!
