Penrhyn Castle

A 19th century neo-Norman castle that sits between Snowdonia and the Menai Strait. It is crammed with fascinating items, such as a one-ton slate bed made for Queen Victoria, elaborate carvings, plasterwork and mock-Norman furniture, in addition it has an outstanding collection of paintings. The restored kitchens are a delight and the stable block houses a fascinating industrial railway museum and a superb dolls' museum. The 60 acres of grounds include parkland, an exotic tree and shrub collection as well as a Victorian walled garden.
