Beaumaris Castle

Beaumaris Castle is located on the Island of Anglesey in Wales, and is possibly the most magnificent piece of unfinished work known to man. Built by the English Monarch Edward I, it was part of the 'Iron ring' of castles he used to cruelly and flamboyantly claim his authority over the Welsh. It is believed that building was meant to begin in 1284, but due to lack of funds this got pushed back. In 1294, just when the English were about ready to begin building, the Welsh rose in passionate rebellion, led by the lion-hearted Madog ap Llywelyn. After a brave year-long battle, the Welsh rebellion was sadly defeated, and in 1295 building work finally began (only 11 years late). This lateness makes Beaumaris Castle the last Edwardian castle to be built in Wales. Even after this extensive delay, building once again had to be postponed when Edward decided to invade Scotland, commencing, once again, 11 years later. By 1330 work finally ceased, and after spending a massive £15,000 on the venture, it still was not complete (though it was a magnificent sight).

From an architectural point of view, Beaumaris Castle is technically perfect, being described by historian Arnold Taylor as 'Britain's most perfect example of symmetrical concentric planning'. Its symmetrical 'walls within walls' have four lines of fortifications, and was top of the range, so to speak, for that time. Many people consider Beaumaris Castle as the finest of all Edwardian castles in Wales, and it's easy to see why.

Visitors can enjoy the vaulted ceiling and pointed windows of the castles chapel, as well as an informative and educational exhibition on various castles that Edward I built in Wales.
