Beaumaris Castle, on the isle of Anglesey, Wales, is the most impressive example of a concentric castle in the world. It’s a formidable, symmetrical little fortress – created by Edward I of England who, in a fit of rage, sought to dominate the Welsh. Beaumaris Castle has been designated a "World Heritage Site" because it represents a significant accomplishment in the art of medieval castle-building. The fact that it is also one of the prettier sites in Wales is a bonus that makes this castle well worth a visit. Beaumaris was originally a Viking settlement known as Porth y Wygyr ("Port of the Vikings"), but the town itself began its development in when Edward I of England, having conquered Wales, commissioned the building of Beaumaris Castle as part of a chain of fortifications around the North Wales coast (others include Conwy, Caernarfon and Harlech).OS grid reference: SH Also, if you book your Beaumaris Castle vacation package in Beaumaris with Travelocity, you’ll get access to our best travel discounts.
