Harlech Castle

Harlech Castle rises impressively from the stunningly rocky terrain of North Wales - A glorious, majestic monster that gazes watchfully over the sea, whilst protecting the magnificent Snowdonia mountain behind it. The castle was built during the end of the 13th century, as one of King Edward I integral 'iron ring' of castles that he used to overpower and contain the Welsh, which also included Beaumaris and Rhuddlan.

However, the fierce and brave Welsh could not be overpowered for long, and in 1404 rebellion leader Owain Glyndwr re-claimed the castle for his country and his people, and went on to hold parliament there. The famous 'Men of Harlech' anthem, still highly popular to this day, describes the Owain Glyndwr's 7 year long siege.

The design of the magnificent structure, and the supervision of its erection, was overseen by James of St George - the same man who designed the majority of Edward I's iron ring. The castle's pride is its gigantic twin-towered gatehouse, upon which many an attacker would have fallen and failed, and also in its secret, 200ft long stairway that leads from the castle to the base of the cliffs below (during times of siege and war, secret parcels of food would have been smuggle, via sea and boat, to this little cliff side entrance, to keep the occupants of the castle fed and healthy).

The castle is open to visitors from 9.30am-5pm daily, and admission is £4.25 for adults and £3.20 for children.
