Beaumaris on the island of Anglesey is famous as the greatest castle never fully built. It was the last of the royal strongholds created by Edward I in Wales and was intended to be the "castle to end all castles". 

This castle is a little further away from a train station than some of the others we have listed, however a short bus ride from Bangor station will allow you to see this unfinished masterpiece for yourself.

Find out more about Beaumaris Castle and its history by visiting the Cadw website.
