Still a work in progress but its fascinating to see how much people were willing to lavish on a folly with so few liveable spaces as an added bonus there is a circular walk round Abergele that starts at the southern end but its a...More

We’ve been coming to Llandudno at least once a year for over 49 years and always wondered about the castle in the hills. So pleased to have had the opportunity to visit at long last. What an idyllic setting. Good luck with the huge renovation...More

I am a big fan of ruins and this was just perfect. The volunteers that run it are friendly and knowledgeable. Would like to say a big thank you to Lewis for taking time out to tell us the history of the Castle.
I second the answer given by Dinny. Nothing but portaloos at present and a few steep climbs if bringing a pram. But worth it. Also worth noting that Abergele is literally 3 mins drive away and there is a huge Tesco there... More
I second the answer given by Dinny. Nothing but portaloos at present and a few steep climbs if bringing a pram. But worth it. Also worth noting that Abergele is literally 3 mins drive away and there is a huge Tesco there that will have toilet facilities. If with children, the campsite that you pass through to get to the castle has a very popular ‘farm walk’ for kiddies with lots of animals for them to see. So something for them and you at same location.
