After all these years Caernarfon’s immense strength remains undimmed. A brute of a fortress. Caernarfon Castle’s pumped-up appearance is unashamedly muscle-bound and intimidating. Picking a fight with this massive structure would have been a...more

Caernarfon is one of the most impressive of Wales's castles. It has survived the years and has only required very basic restoration. I would strongly recommend taking the tour, as it really brought the castle to life, with really interesting stories of the various rooms,...More

Very large castle, with lots to see. But much involves being outside, so as it was raining it became a bit miserable. Good information area with lots of history - good for adults, bit too much reading for children! LOTS of steps to climb so...More

Yes there is plenty of car parks near the castle, the main one being directly outside of it, think it's £5.00 for the full day. I checked with the parking attendant who confirmed you can leave the car park and return later in the same day on the same pass. It is also possible to go in and out of the castle once you've paid your entry fee ( for that day only) but it allows you to spend a few hours looking round then you can go into town for lunch and return back later in the day, having two children we found this useful.
