Travel Guide for Wales and England >  Castles and Forts in Wales and England >  Caernarfon Castle
Caernarfon Castle is one of Wales most famous attractions ...and with good reason. With its seven polygonal towers (including the great Eagle Tower), two gatehouses, and walls of colour-banded stone, King Edward I intended the castle to be a royal residence and seat of government for north Wales. Begun in 1283 under the direction of Master James of St George, the King's mason-architect, and continuously in Crown possession since.

Scene of much recent royal pageantry, including the 1969 Investiture of the Prince of Wales.

World Heritage Site. Three site exhibitions; Regimental Museum of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers; The Eagle and the Dragon audio-visual display. There is a complete circuit of Town Walls, including eight towers and two twin towered gateways, surviving in places to battlement height.
