“If you've never seen a castle up close, this is your chance ! Walk in and around the walls of Caernarfon Castle. A must.”

“Beaumaris Castle (Welsh: Castell Biwmares), in Beaumaris, Anglesey, Wales, was built as part of Edward I's campaign to conquer north Wales after 1282. Plans were probably first made to construct the castle in 1284, but this was delayed due to lack of funds and work only began in 1295 following the Madog ap Llywelyn uprising. A substantial workforce was employed in the initial years under the direction of James of St George. Edward's invasion of Scotland soon diverted funding from the project, however, and work stopped, only recommencing after an invasion scare in 1306. When work finally ceased around 1330 a total of £15,000 had been spent, a huge sum for the period, but the castle remained incomplete. Beaumaris Castle was taken by Welsh forces in 1403 during the rebellion of Owain Glyndŵr, but recaptured by royal forces in 1405. Following the outbreak of the English Civil War in 1642, the castle was held by forces loyal to Charles I, holding out until 1646 when it surrendered to the Parliamentary armies. Despite forming part of a local royalist rebellion in 1648, the castle escaped slighting and was garrisoned by Parliament, but fell into ruin around 1660, eventually forming part of a stately home and park in the 19th century. In the 21st century, the ruined castle is still a tourist attraction. Historian Arnold Taylor described Beaumaris Castle as Britain's "most perfect example of symmetrical concentric planning". The fortification is built of local stone, with a moated outer ward guarded by twelve towers and two gatehouses, overlooked by an inner ward with two large, D-shaped gatehouses and six massive towers. The inner ward was designed to contain ranges of domestic buildings and accommodation able to support two major households. The south gate could be reached by ship, allowing the castle to be directly supplied by sea. UNESCO considers Beaumaris to be one of "the finest examples of late 13th century and early 14th century military architecture in Europe", and it is classed as a World Heritage site.”

“Caernarfon Castle is recognised around the world as one of the greatest buildings of the Middle Ages. This fortress-palace on the banks of the River Seiont is grouped with Edward I’s other castles at Conwy, Beaumaris and Harlech as a World Heritage Site. But for sheer scale and architectural drama Caernarfon stands alone. Here Edward and his military architect Master James of St George erected a castle, town walls and a quay all at the same time. This gigantic building project eventually took 47 years and cost a staggering £25,000. The castle was born out of bitter war with Welsh princes. So of course its immense curtain walls and daunting King’s Gate were designed to withstand assault. But the polygonal towers, eagle statues and multi-coloured masonry sent a more subtle message. These echoed imperial Roman architecture, especially the walls of Constantinople. They also recalled the Welsh myth of Macsen Wledig, who dreamed of a great fort at the mouth of a river – ‘the fairest that man ever saw’. So Caernarfon is a castle of dreams. A legend brought to life. Even after 700 years it still stirs the imagination like no other Welsh castle.”

“Menai Bridge - LL59 5EY - 01248 716714 With sister restaurants in both Cricceth and Llandudno, these guys are taking North Wales by storm! Their unique Anglesey venue overlooks the Straits – and all three have gorgeous seaside themed décor. Their ethos is to celebrate the local produce, character & natural beauty of the area – and they do so to perfection! Specialising in homemade pizzas - as well as seafood and locally sourced meat – this place has fabulous sea-views, sells its own products (including sauces, luxury hampers, clothing & Welsh slate ‘boards’ etc) - and has lots of ‘foodie’ events going on throughout the year – including bread, baking & pizza making workshops, wine, gin & whisky nights – as well as food & film evenings – so check their website for details! Open from lunch until late every day of the week – but out of season it’s safer to ring ahead! Booking is advisable during weekends and busy periods. ”

“Rhosneigr - LL64 5JP - 01407 812 829 Located on the outskirts of the village, this trendy seaside themed bar & restaurant is run by the same team as Rhoscolyn’s White Eagle. Sadly, there are no sea views, but it does overlook pretty Maelog Lake. The sea (which you can often hear) is actually just over the dues behind their unique environmentally-friendly ‘Huf-haus’ property! You can even nip straight off the beach for a ‘takeout’! Generally speaking, they’re open all year round - serving morning coffee, breakfast baps (in the busy periods), cakes, lunch, afternoon-teas & supper. You can even choose between their ‘Decking’ or ‘main restaurant’ menus & venues. With heated ‘beach-huts’ on the raised outdoor decking, and a relaxed indoor/outdoor bar downstairs, this place is great come rain or shine! Open Monday – Saturday: 10am - 11pm. Food Service times are Monday - Saturday: 12pm - 9pm/Sunday: 12pm - 8pm. They also host lots of ‘foodie’ events throughout the year.”

“Red Wharf Bay - LL75 8RJ - 01248 852751 Although located in St David’s Holiday Park, don’t let this put you off – as they have a fabulous menu and distinctive decor. Usually serving lunch between 12.30 – 2.30pm, and from 6 - 9pm for evening meals (8.30pm on Sundays – with a limited menu due to catering for the traditional Sunday roast they offer). Popular with both park users, locals and walkers – it bridges the gap between an upmarket restaurant and traditional tavern. Their amazing glass frontage wraps right around the original building - providing a mesmerising 270° panoramic view - taking in both Benllech & Red Wharf Bay, all the way to the Great Orme in Llandudno on mainland Wales! ”

“Church Bay - LL65 4EU - 01407 730241 An old favourite – but a bit dated these days! Why they won't spend some money on a PROPER renovation (and get some help with the 'look', I don't know...it's crying out for it! Live lobsters & crabs kept on site – and all caught locally. Their shell-fish dishes are always very good but - as I said - we think they need to up their game in terms of décor and modernity a bit! Nothing wrong with traditional, and the staff are always lovely, but it’s lagging behind many of Anglesey’s ‘newer’ restaurants in lots of ways. Still popular though, especially with older locals, and for those who remember it being a special childhood treat! Sea views from some parts of the restaurant and garden. ”
