Criccieth Castle

Criccieth Castle

This native Welsh castle is located on the popular seaside resort of Criccieth on the Llyn Peninsula in Gwynedd.

Started by ‘Llewellyn the Great’ in 1231, the castle is now a ruin but was once an imposing fort that overshadowed the town. 

The castle is worth visiting for the fascinating history and spectacular views across Tremadog Bay.
