Penrhyn Castle

Book Tickets Online


A 19th century fantasy castle with industrial and colonial foundations. The dominating stone façade of Penrhyn Castle hides more than just its internal red-brick construction.

The unique architecture, opulent interiors and fine art collection sit alongside a history of sugar and slate fortunes, of social unrest and the longest-running industrial dispute in British history. Discover Penrhyn’s history, its vast rooms, neo-Norman stairways and Victorian kitchens.

The extensive grounds are perfect for exploring and enjoying spectacular views of Snowdonia and the North Wales coast. Little explorers can climb trees, make dens and run wild in the adventure playground.

There’s something for everyone at Penrhyn, just expect the unexpected.
