World Heritage Day

Details

All aboard the magic bus for an extraordinary tour of Harlech Castle! How is this possible you say? Well come along and find out! One driver, one conductor and your guide will take you on a bus tour of the castle. Ground-level only, as driving a bus up spiral staircases is impossible! This will have to be done on foot, after your guide has told you all the interesting places to explore.

Beaumaris, Conwy, Caernarfon and Harlech castles, together with the fortifications surrounding the towns of Conwy and Caernarfon, have been collectively declared a World Heritage Site. These castles have been described as the finest examples of military architecture of their kind in Europe. At the time of building, their designs were ground breaking and their structural magnificence remains as imposing as ever.

Enjoy World Heritage Day at one of four castles. Whatever your view, each castle is a compelling story in stone.
