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 were staying a couple of minute walk from the Castle so this was a must visit for us. It was sunny day and we enjoyed wandering around the grounds. Liked the fact that they had not closed off too many of the stairways/passages so...More
After years walking around the outside we finally made it through the doors. What a huge place. You can walk around all the walls and get spectacular views of the surrounding area. The film on in one of the towers outlining the history was great....More

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.
