Pocket Guide: Snowdonia National Park Harlech Castle Hotels

Harlech Castle is a stunning medieval fort rising high above Snowdonia National Park and listed by UNESCO as one of Wales' six World Heritage Sites. The castle has had a prominent role in many of the definitive moments in British history and is an unmissable stop on any tour of North Wales.

The castle was built in the late 13th Century during the reign of Edward I and boasts double walls around its perimeter, four large towers and a robust gatehouse. These fortifications later played a crucial role during numerous blockades. Most famously, in a siege immortalised in the famous Welsh anthem "Men of Harlech", the castle was held for seven years by the Lancastrians in the War of the Roses. It was also the last remaining stronghold of the Royalists during the English Civil War.

Today Harlech Castle remains as imposing fort, standing atop sheer cliffs and surrounded by the rugged hills and peaks of Snowdonia National Park, as well as the picturesque Harlech Village itself. Its location close to the Irish Sea also ensures unrivalled views for visitors.

This 700 year old fort makes for a memorable day out for all the family. Harlech Castle is open to visitors throughout the year and sometimes plays host to special medieval-themed events and workshops on archery, woodworking and other crafts.

It's hard to miss Harlech Castle as you drive towards it from north or south along the A496; its fortifications rising out of the landscape are viewable for miles around.
