A fantastic day out for holidaymakers staying in hotels, B&Bs and guesthouses in nearby Rhyl, as well as villages in the surrounding area, Bodelwyddan Castle offers visitors the chance to experience a little slice of Welsh history and explore one of the most beautiful stately homes in the country.
Though it was originally built in 1460 by the Humphreys family of Anglesey, the building that we see today largely dates back to the 1830s when the castle was reconstructed by Sir John Hay Williams.
During its long and colourful existence, the castle has been a family house, a hospital for wounded soldiers and a private school for girls. Today, Bodelwyddan Castle is run as a museum and arts centre with a luxury hotel and other amenities also located with the grounds.
