Step back in time and enjoy a family day out to Denbigh Castle, North Wales. Explore Denbigh castle with its striking triple-towered great gatehouse. Edward I built his fortress in the 13th century, complete with over half a mile of town walls on top of what was a Welsh stronghold. He wanted to ensure that nothing remained of the legacy of his predecessor, Dafydd ap Gruffudd, who by the way Edward I had hung, drawn and quartered for rebelling against him.
