  • Denbigh Castle and Town Walls

    Denbigh Castle and Town Walls are much the largest, the strongest and the best preserved of all borderlands fortresses.

  • Ewloe Castle

    Ewloe Castle is intriguing. It is not a fairytale castle like Conwy, but instead is a hidden gem in the green woodlands of North East Wales. Located 1 mile north west of Hawarden, just off the A55, Ewloe is a ruinous castle located in a beautiful valley. It is hard to find, with only a small roadside sign pointing it out. There is a pull-over lane...
