Wales is renowned for its castles and ancient sites. Many of the castles, including Conwy Castle, Beaumaris Castle, Rhuddlan Castle and of course Caernarfon Castle are World Heritage Sites. Indeed Conwy town, the classic walled town with it's circuit of walls being over three quarters of a mile long and guarded by no less than 22 towers, is one of the finest examples of a walled town in Europe.
We also list the Old Churches that are to be found over the length and breadth of Wales, including many that were founded over a thousand years ago by the early Christian Saints,
But a thousand years is still modern history when compared to the age of the ancient burial chambers and standing stones that are scattered throughout Wales. We list the locations of these ancient sites from Bryn Celli Ddu in Anglesey in the North to Pentre Ifan, a Bronze-Age megalithic site in Pembrokeshire in the South of Wales.
Please visit the sites while on holiday in Wales whether you want to make a specific holiday for the Castles and the heritage, or just visit the sites while taking a weekend break in Wales.
