With its distinctive profile set against the skyline of Snowdonia, Harlech is justifiably one of Wales’s most famous castles. It’s got a turbulent history too. No wonder it’s a World Heritage site.
Explore this awesome castle built for Edward I – it boasts two rings of walls and towers, with an immensely strong east gatehouse. It was impregnable from almost every angle.
The castle’s secret weapon was a 200-foot-long stairway from the castle to the cliff base. Access to the sea beyond allowed crucial supplies to be brought in which kept the castle’s besieged inhabitants fed and watered. Seven hundred years later the tide has receded, but take to the ramparts and the views are as wonderful as ever.
