Beautiful Beaumaris

Our last stop in our North Wales whizz is the lovely little town of Beaumaris, which also happens to be the very first place we ever went on holiday together, way back nearly 16 years ago 🙂

Its name is based on the Norman ‘beau marais’, meaning ‘fair marsh’ and was chosen by Edward 1 for the last of his ‘Iron ring’ of castles, constructed in his bid to control the Welsh.

Beaumaris castle is a World Heritage site and was constructed between 1295-1330. Today its formidable walls slumber under a blue sky.

That’s all from Wales 2020 – but plenty more UK based explorations coming up from the pandemic years!
