Described by the National Trust as a ’19th century Fantasy Castle’, Penrhyn is just over an hour’s drive from Pentrehobyn in Llandygai, Bangor, Gwynedd.
It is in the form of a Norman castle – originally a medieval fortified manor house – founded by Ednyfed Fychan. Penrhyn’s attractions include a formal walled garden, extensive informal gardens, an adventure playground, picnic areas and woodland walks. There is The Penrhyn Castle Railway Museum, a narrow gauge railway museum and the castle hosts one of the finest art collections in Wales. Penrhyn enjoys stunning views over the Snowdonia mountains, the Menai Strait and Puffin Island.
