About Gwrych Castle
Gwrych Castle sits on the site of a Norman castle dating back to the 12th century. Destroyed during the English Civil War by Cromwell's army the newest castle was constructured in 1819, and took some six years to complete. Now a Grade 1 listed building Gwrych Castle is set back in a hill facing towards the Irish Sea, surrounded by trees. At its majestic best the castle boasted 128 rooms, 28 of which being bedroooms plus 19 embattled towers.
After a 20 year campaign to restore the castle, local resident and architectural historian Dr. Mark Baker re-opened part of the castle to the public in 2015. More recently Gwrych Castle was visited by Michael Portillo during his latest series - Great British Railway Journeys.
