After all these years Caernarfon’s immense strength remains undimmed. 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...more

We had such a great day at the castle. We were staying in Caernarfon so walked to the castle. Our 5 year old loved climbing all the stairs to get to the top of the look outs. Great views! Such a big castle with lots...More
The stature and structure of this castle is in incredibly good condition after 800 years. So much history and stories to wonder at. Lots of info on the site - some was a little dated and could be improved. If you like history or castles...More

Got off of a cruise that included a few different castles and cathedrals. It's easy to get 'castled out.'

Yes there is plenty of car parks near the castle, the main one being directly outside of it, think it's £5.00 for the full day. I checked with the parking attendant who confirmed you can leave the car park and return later in the same day on the same pass. It is also possible to go in and out of the castle once you've paid your entry fee ( for that day only) but it allows you to spend a few hours looking round then you can go into town for lunch and return back later in the day, having two children we found this useful.
