About the gazetteer

There are two distinct styles of castles in Wales; native Welsh fortresses, which present some unique architectural features (notable the frequent use of a D-shaped layout), and later English castles built to impose the authority of the English crown on the Welsh. among the latter category are some of the most impressive and significant castles in Britain, including World Heritage sites like Caernarfon and Conwy. We hope you enjoy exploring these wonderful medieval fortresses, but if you'd like to take it one step further, why not actually stay in a Welsh castle? Take a look at our Castle Hotels in Wales page for more.
