北威爾斯 – 安格爾西和卡那封城
Once a place of many lonely light towers. Today, these towers have become one of the most fascinating popular tourist sites on the island. Found at each corner of the coast; dividing the endless beaches along the coast of Anglesey, or standing proud above cliffs, against the wind and rain, marking their own corner of the island. Illuminating a safe passage for ships that cross in the night.
Anglesey coast |安格爾西的海岸沿缐景色
While talking about the Beaumaris Castle in Anglesey, it is unavoidable to bring up nearby Caernarfon Castle as they are fairly close to each other. Both castles are magnificently huge, and being the only surviving Welsh castles in the UK, are the symbol of the medieval building.
談到Anglesey安格爾西的Beaumaris Castle波馬利斯城堡，就不其然的會跟Caernarfon Castle卡那封城堡相提並論，因為兩者相隔車程不遠，同樣是佔地甚廣的壯偉建築，也是英國碩果僅存的威爾士城堡中，中世紀城堡建築的表表者。

The majestic castle of Anglesey, the Duke’s Mansion and, my favourite, the Cape Lights.
Travel by car
Place we stayed:
We rented a small house in Penygroes, as the bank holiday had rolled around too quickly and this was the closest we could get to Anglesey. The house was great but just meant a lot of driving each day. We didn’t have the motorhome with us this trip so all the parking only allows for a small car.
Parking to access:
Caernarfon: There is a large car park next to the castle that seemed to have enough space for motorhomes.
Southstack: The road was fairly narrow all the way to the lighthouse but there was a car park at the top, near the visitor centre, that did have motorhomes parked.
Copper kingdom: There was plenty of parking around the area, as well as a small car park that was free on the day we visited.
Penmon: There is a gated drive, leading to the main parking area, that is patrolled by someone who collects a charge for entering. It’s well worth it, but no ‘official’ overnight stays.
Beaumaris: There is plenty of parking near the castle.
Llanfairpwllgwyngyll: The train station had a car park that we could use to visit the station and the nearby souvenir shop.
Plas Newydd House and Gardens: Being a national trust property it has it’s own car park that will easily accommodate motorhomes.
Copper kingdom: 停車場就在訪客中心附近。
Plas Newydd House and Gardens: 內置大停車場，可泊露營車。
