A view of Harlech Castle in North Wales with its robust stone towers and walls, under a cloudy sky, flags waving atop, grass in the foreground.

A glorious day to visit Harlech Castle. Built by Edward I during his invasion of Wales in the 13th century and perched on a steep rock face, it took just seven years for the master architect James of St George to build the castle.

It has been a designated UNESCO World Heritage site since 1986, along with Conwy, Caernarfon and Beaumaris castles. Well worth a visit if you’re in North Wales.
