Caernarfon Castle offers a fantastic day out with children in North Wales.
This impressive castle was built by Edward I and a visit to the castle allows families to learn all about King Edwards thirst for conquering Wales. Learn all about why the site was chosen and allow the children to imagine a world with sword fights against the Welsh rebels, slaying dragons, and explore a time long gone as you learn about the life of the people and the Kings of early Britain and of course, visit the Royal Welch Fusiliers Museum to learn all about the lives of militia in times gone by.
Explore the narrow passageways, and climb the spiral staircases for incredible views of the mountains of Snowdonia and views over Anglesey. Can you squeeze yourself into the arrow holes? Imagine a time when soldiers would be on the lookout here, watching out for threats. Learn all about the castles defenses including pouring boiling oil and hot water on potential invaders!
