These three castles and associated town walls built by Edward 1 in the 13th century make up this World Heritage Site. It's just possible to see all three in a day, travelling from here, but an early start is needed and expect to be late back. All of the castles are spectacular and very well preserved for their age. The round trip is 200 miles, not exactly local but a good drive out for the day in spectacular scenery. Conwy Castle (Pictured) is 60 miles from The Manor and takes about 1.5 hrs, it's another 25 miles to Beaumaris Castle and a further 45 miles to Harlech castle, returning from Harlech to The manor is 70 miles.
