Beaumaris is a small toen on the east coast of the island of Anglesea. Once more the town is dominated by a mighty castle, built by Edward I.
Begun in 1295, this unfinished castle is the last and largest of King Edward I's Welsh fortifications. Designed by the king's mason-architect, Master James of St George, it is a perfect example of a concentrically planned castle. Formidable defences survive, surrounded by a partly restored moat.
The town also has other attractions, including museums, shopping, and restaurants / cafes.

Address: Beaumaris, Anglesey
Directions: A545, north of Menai Bridge.
