Gwrych Castle is an enchanting gothic ruin on the picturesque North Wales coastline, with spectacular sea views and fairytale splendour around every corner.

The castle was used as a set location for various filming such as I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! A few elements from filming over the years are on display as part of our historical exhibition.

The main building itself remains a ruin, however we have a few interior areas available along our visitor route. Click on the link below to find out what to expect during your visit to Gwrych Castle.
