Built in the late 13th century and reputed to be haunted by a past resident, this picturesque castle was built for King Edward I and is a perfect example of the "concentric castle" design.

Awesome castle. Very tactile building, beautiful surroundings and great sights. Tricky to park close by, but worth the hassle!

I spent a delightful few hours exploring this castle. There are lovely views from the tops of the towers.

A good castle to visit still plenty to see. Smaller then others in Wales but still a reasonable size. Great views from the top of the turrets so is worth the climb, its all safe. Allow around an hour should be sufficient.

The good - what an amazing structure! Build in the late 1200s and with so much of it still standing it was fascinating and well worth a visit. We spent a good amount of time there and then strolled around the quaint town. Highly recommended!...More

Very well restored and preserved castle. Massive towers, royal apartments, etc. Better go on a nice and sunny day, beautiful views, can make great photos.

Quite expensive if I’m honest, but I guess the cost of upkeep is quite high. The castle is good, excellent views from the top! Stairs steep and winding, so not for people who aren’t sure footed or have balance issues. Good way to spend a...More

The museum, shop & the grounds are fun you can also go round the ground floor but the ramparts most defiantly not as it would be impossible to do this
