Castle Ditch


Caernarfon Castle, built by Edward I following a successful charge across North Wales, is a wonderland of turrets, towers and magnificent gates. The King wasted no time in marking the castles significance with the birth of his 4th son who would become the first Prince of Wales and go on to reign England as Edward II. King Edward had the walls built in bands of different colored stones – a nod to Constantinople – which intended to show strength. The huge towers which surround the inner courtyard are polygonal in shape and are unique in Edwardian castles. The Eagle Tower, with its three polygonal towers sprouting from it, is the jewel in Caernarfon Castles crown. It’s a long climb up a narrowing stairway but the views from this most westerly point of the castle are amazing. Anglesey beyond the Menai Straights to the North-West and Snowdonia National Park to the South-East. Visit Caernarfon Castle today! By Tim Tunnicliff from Tunnocks World Tour -
