This massive well preserved castle offers much more than I expected. In addition to the fabric of the building, which includes several towers and walkways on different levels, there are a number of interesting exhibits providing details of its history and why it was built on this site. The Welch Fusilier Regiment museum was excellent - well laid out, informative and probably better than other military museums that I've been to (this includes the Imperial was Museum). A great way to spend.

A family membership will give you free entry to all the Cadw castles in the area so soon becomes very good value. This is our favourite castle. Harlech is a great little town with a fabulous beach and part of the coastal walk.Good places to stay and eat. The castle has a very nice cafe. It is a little expensive but the food is good. I had a homemade carrot, beetroot and ginger soup with a hunk of bread. It also turns into a tapas style restaurant in the evening. We will be visiting again!

The Castle is a great experience. The entrance of to the castle has a really fun and factual interactive display for children. The interactive table is great but make sure they sit on the wooden throne and press the button. We had no children with us but really enjoyed it! The Castle is high up and the views are beautiful. There are information boards all round explaining where you are in the Castle or guide books are available with the history of the castle. The grass up there is like walking.
