Beaumaris Castle

Beaumaris Castle on the Isle of Anglesey in North Wales was another castle, like Caernarfon to be built by Edward I. Construction began in 1295 but stopped around 1300 with the castle unfinished.

Being unfinished doesn’t mean that there isn’t still plenty to see however. Almost completely surrounded by a water filled moat it is still an impressive building with, like Caernarfon, lots of towers and spiral staircases to explore.

We also saw more wildlife at Beaumaris, cows in a nearby field and lots of seagulls making nests.

There is also a chapel within the castle which is a highlight, with its vaulted ceiling and stained glass windows.

You also get some stunning views from the top of the castle towers and walls.

It’s a lovely castle and well worth a visit. You can find more of my photos here.
