Castles of Wales Day Trip

Castles of Wales Day Trip from Liverpool

Visit the mighty fortress and World Heritage Site of Caernarfon Castle (entrance included). Caernarfon Castle was one of Edward I’s most ambitious projects – and one of the most visited attractions in Wales due to its sheer size and impressive architecture. After visiting the castle we will have free time for lunch in Caernarfon town. Next it’s a visit to Llanberis and the scenic Welsh Castle of Dolbadarn – set on Llyn Padarn Lake at the base of the Snowdonia mountain range. A great beauty spot in the UK!

Trip Itinerary

We will visit two very different castles in one day! First we will have an informative history overview of Caernarfon Castle before having free time to explore in small groups or by yourself. We will have an optional meet up time for those who would like to join the guides to see the ‘picture postcard’ view of the Castle from across the river Seiont. You will have free time for lunch in Caernarfon town. After this we will travel 20 minutes by coach to Llanberis where we will take a short walk through the woods to view Dolbadarn Castle. We will have some free time here to enjoy the views before heading back to Liverpool.  

Walk difficulty: Medium. Some cobbled streets, small narrow staircases in the Castle and a short steep climb when walking up to Dolbadarn Castle. It can be muddy and slippy here so come prepared with walking boots or suitable footwear with grips.  

variations on the trip

Sometimes things don’t always go to plan and British weather can be changeable. If the guides deem the area to be too flooded, icy or if there are extreme high winds or heavy rain we may offer an alternative to Dolbadarn Castle which would be to visit the town of Conwy – another beautiful medieval town in Wales. We do believe in getting outside and enjoying the outdoors so if it’s simply raining, please come prepared as we will get wet (and have a great time doing so!).
