An opportunity for a photo stop will be available at the beautiful and scenic Menai Bridge.

Sunday — Beaumaris Castle

The Island of Anglesey is the home of Beaumaris Castle, which was built by King Edward I as one of the North Wales “Iron Ring” castles. King Edward I built the castle to mark his authority on the people of Wales but due to financial problems and supplies running short, the castle was never completed.

Even though the castle is unfinished, you will agree that it is still an impressive sight. Started in 1295, the castle is known to be one of the finest Edwardian castles in the whole of Wales. James of St George, the king’s very own military architect, designed and built this castle, which is the largest and the most ambitious project he was ever involved with.

Your visit to the castle will include a private tour guide who will be providing information during your visit and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Beaumaris Town

Beaumaris began life as a Viking settlement as was originally known as Porth y Wygyr which means Port of the Vikings. In 1295, when King Edward I conquered Wales, the town started its development and the castle was commissioned. The name Beaumaris comes from the French builders at the time who were calling the area “Beaux Marais”, which translates as “beautiful marsh”.

Beaumaris was one of the most important Saxon ports in the United Kingdom. The port was centred on Gallows Point, a public execution area for the criminals held in the local gaol. It is said that the last prisoner to hang there, screamed a curse on the area letting all the people know that if he was innocent, the four faces of the church clock would never be able to display the same time and to this day, they never have.
