Château
“Beaumaris Castle (Welsh: Castell Biwmares), in Beaumaris, Anglesey, Wales, was built as part of Edward I's campaign to conquer north Wales after 1282. Plans were probably first made to construct the castle in 1284, but this was delayed due to lack of funds and work only began in 1295 following the Madog ap Llywelyn uprising. A substantial workforce was employed in the initial years under the direction of James of St George. Edward's invasion of Scotland soon diverted funding from the project, however, and work stopped, only recommencing after an invasion scare in 1306. When work finally ceased around 1330 a total of £15,000 had been spent, a huge sum for the period, but the castle remained incomplete. Beaumaris Castle was taken by Welsh forces in 1403 during the rebellion of Owain Glyndŵr, but recaptured by royal forces in 1405. Following the outbreak of the English Civil War in 1642, the castle was held by forces loyal to Charles I, holding out until 1646 when it surrendered to the Parliamentary armies. Despite forming part of a local royalist rebellion in 1648, the castle escaped slighting and was garrisoned by Parliament, but fell into ruin around 1660, eventually forming part of a stately home and park in the 19th century. In the 21st century, the ruined castle is still a tourist attraction. Historian Arnold Taylor described Beaumaris Castle as Britain's "most perfect example of symmetrical concentric planning". The fortification is built of local stone, with a moated outer ward guarded by twelve towers and two gatehouses, overlooked by an inner ward with two large, D-shaped gatehouses and six massive towers. The inner ward was designed to contain ranges of domestic buildings and accommodation able to support two major households. The south gate could be reached by ship, allowing the castle to be directly supplied by sea. UNESCO considers Beaumaris to be one of "the finest examples of late 13th century and early 14th century military architecture in Europe", and it is classed as a World Heritage site.”

“Beaumaris - LL58 8AP - 01248 810329 Here you can choose between the informal ‘Brasserie’ downstairs (in the shape of a tasteful ‘traditional’ bar), or upstairs their elegant ‘fine dining’ restaurant called ‘The Loft’ (a wooden conservatory space). Housed in a 400-year-old building, this place provides a superb mix of traditional and modern dining. With its roaring fires, cask ales, tartan carpets & dark woodwork downstairs - and light & airy feel upstairs - this well-known watering hole - right in the centre of beautiful Beaumaris - provides both a cosy, yet contemporary dining-out experience. With ‘The Loft’ menus put together by award-winning chef, Hefin Roberts, you’ll never be disappointed! Known for using locally sourced ingredients & produce in imaginative ways, his unique combinations are just delicious! Please check their website for opening times. ”

“Neaumaris - LL58 8BB - 01248 810429 The Midland, with its chic and understated decor (which has breathed new life into this beautiful old ban (hence the name) has proved VERY popular since its opening! The only downside is the sheer variety on the menu - which leaves you struggling to know which options to go for! True to its Spanish roots though, there are things like Jamon Iberico & Patatas Bravas - but they’ve cleverly managed to mix these up with Welsh recipes - as well as seafood, and ‘garden’ flavours; which makes the whole experience so much more interesting and varied! As with all the best Anglesey eateries, there’s an emphasis on local produce - especially on seafood - and it’s loads of fun getting to try lots of different dishes! So, if you like mixing & matching your meals - this is the place for you! Open in winter (from November until the end of March) from Wednesday to Sunday, 12pm-3pm, then again from 5pm – until last orders (but closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Open in Summer (from Easter to November)7 days a week, from 12pm – until last orders. Glutenfree, vegetarian and vegan options available. ”

“Beaumaris - LL58 8BB - 01248 810022 Located in the heart of Beaumaris - in a marvellous medieval property - it’s the perfect place to enjoy the finest ice cream Anglesey has to offer…with lots of other tasty treats upstairs in their restaurant area too! Run by the lovely Tony and Lyn, they do sorbets as well - and with ice-cream flavours such as crème brûlée, bara brith, rhubarb crumble & jammy dodger, you’ll be spoilt for choice! Upstairs they offer savoury & sweet pancakes, pizzas, soups, sandwiches, ciabattas, dessert waffles - and even breakfast options – so there’s something for everyone in this pretty parlour. By the way, Tony trained in the art of ice cream making at the world famous Carpigiani University, Italy - so you’re in safe hands! Made fresh on the premises - you can be sure it’s be the best tasting ‘gelato’ for miles! Open daily: 10am - 5pm - they only close on Christmas Day!

Point of Interest
“Fancy a trip to Puffin island and hopefully see some puffins, then check out Seacoast Safaris in Beaumaris. May to Mid August is the best time to sea any Puffins, as they only visit the Island during breeding season. Worth a trip during this time of the year! You might even be lucky enough to see Dolphins and Sealions on your way!”

“Beaumaris - LL58 8BS - 01248 811055 Although there are loads of other lovely places to eat-out in Beaumaris, we always seem to end up here! Situated just behind the town’s littlee pier, and with stunning sea views available (both inside and out) it really is a sweet little spot! Offering drinks, breakfasts, lunch & supper, their speciality sandwich melts, homemade soups, steak & ale pie, fillet steaks, and Welsh rarebit are all excellent! They also have a good choice of vegetarian, gluten-free and vegan options - and a great children's menu too. They’ve already been voted the 3rd best seafood restaurant in Anglesey on TripAdvisor; which isn’t surprising if you’ve tried their famous homemade fish & chips (in gin and tonic batter), Menai mussels, or dressed crab salad! Sitting outside - (over-looking the Menai Strait across to Snowdonia), with a hot chocolate in hand and local treat on your plate, is simply delightful! In summer they’re open daily from 8am - 9.30pm – and the rest of the year from Monday - Friday, 9am- 9pm – with Saturday and Sunday hours being from 8.30am - 9pm. ”
