North Wales Castles
North Wales is famous for its rugged coastline, dramatic mountains and golden sandy beaches. However, often overlooked is the impressive collection of mighty castles in North Wales. Known as the "castle capital of the world", there was once approximatley 600 castles in Wales. Today, over 100 castles remain standing, either in ruins or restored to their natural beauty and North Wales is lucky enough to be home to a number of truly spectacular Medieval fortresses.
As nature's natural water feature, there's something awe-inspiring and humbling about a beautiful and powerful waterfall. North Wales is home to many, some well-known, and others well-hidden. But all are worth a visit, especially during the long summer days. We've listed some beauties that you can find across our region. Waterfall's do change with the seasons, so we can't guarantee that all of these will necessarily look like they do in the photos when you pay your own visit. And as stunning and tempting these falls are, it's important to remain safe on your visit, and to plan accordingly for the weather, the terrain and the water.
