After all these years Caernarfon’s immense strength remains undimmed. A brute of a fortress. Caernarfon Castle’s pumped-up appearance is unashamedly muscle-bound and intimidating. Picking a fight with this massive structure would have been a...more

Another fantastic day out in Caernarfon and the Caernarfon Castle.

A convoluted route following signs to the castle, as you can see the turrets as you appear to drive away from it, but it all makes sense when you arrive to the car park right next to it.
Stunning, majestic sight as you arrive and...More
We were visiting my husbands son and his family and on a rainy Saturday afternoon, there was enough to engage 4 adults and two small girls. The Royal Welch Fusiliers museum was interesting to young and old, good displays and dressing up opportunities to keep...More

It was a cold and rainy day in september 2018, but the locals were so warm and friendly and the castle and exhibits very interesting and well signposted. It was expensive but well worth the money. We stayed at least 3 hours! Superb views !

Yes there is plenty of car parks near the castle, the main one being directly outside of it, think it's £5.00 for the full day. I checked with the parking attendant who confirmed you can leave the car park and return later in the same day on the same pass. It is also possible to go in and out of the castle once you've paid your entry fee ( for that day only) but it allows you to spend a few hours looking round then you can go into town for lunch and return back later in the day, having two children we found this useful.
