August is the perfect time to visit North West Wales, with lots of local events and activities to get involved with and a (slightly) better chance of good weather to enjoy the outdoors! Here are some ideas for things to do over the long weekend if you are visiting the area. Remember you can check room availability and book online at the hotel here.

Beaumaris Medieval Festival 29-30 August.

Immerse yourself in the rich heritage and history of Beaumaris Castle.

 This colourful annual festival brings Beaumaris Castle to life and makes a fantastic event for families to enjoy this bank holiday weekend. The festival will magically transport you back to medieval history, with lots of fun activities for children to get involved with, including ‘Knight School’ and jester workshops. Grown-ups can try their hand as an eagle-eyed archer, or take part in a hands-on falconry demonstration.

Wander around this historic site and explore this unique 13th Century castle famed for its outstanding military architecture. Look out over incredible views of the Snowdonia Mountains whilst walking the walls of this ingenious construction – see if you can identify all 14 of Beaumaris castle’s major defences. Make sure you take some time at the end of the day to watch the dramatic battle re-enactment that sees brave knights collide in combat in the castle grounds, before heading off into town to enjoy an ice cream and a stroll along the pier.

For more information on this event visit the Cadw website.
