Against fierce competition from Conwy, Caernarfon and Beaumaris, this is probably he most spectacular setting for any of Edward I’s castles in North Wales. 

With the rugged peaks of Eryri as a backdrop and views of the sea galore, Harlech Castle crowns a sheer rocky crag overlooking the dunes far below. It is also the castle that is in the closest proximity to one of our train stations, Harlech.
