Agree with previous comments on the lack of information and closed visitor centre. So much more could be made of this attraction. We were lucky to have a classics scholar with us but even then it was a lot of educated guesswork. Such a missed...More

As with other reviews, the visitor centre was closed on a busy Friday in August during the times when it should have been open. The lack of decent information boards around the ruins made it very difficult to connect structures with what they would have...More

Had a quick look around whilst staying in Caernarfon. The visitor centre wasn't open when we went, which was a pity. It just lacked a few information boards to let you know what you were loooking at.

On the edge of Caernarfon, this historic site is interesting and contains well-preserved wall bases. We walked around a bit, but were disappointed that the visitor's center was closed and no great signage was available to explain the site thoroughly. This is only a few...More
