Great Castles of North Wales

Visit the spectacular castles built by Edward 1st in the company of acclaimed historian Marc Morris

In the late thirteenth century, in the course of three devastating campaigns, Wales was conquered by the English King Edward the 1st. To cement his victory he built a string of mighty castles which became the greatest chain of fortresses in medieval Europe. Situated along the Welsh coast, against the backdrop of the mountains of Snowdonia, they are among the most beautiful and scenic buildings in Britain celebrated since the eighteenth century by diarists, poets and painters. Today their global importance is recognised by their collective designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

This tour will take in the most spectacular of Edward's Welsh Castles with your host Dr Marc Morris. Marc is a medieval historian and broadcaster best known for his TV series on British castles. In 2008 he published a bestselling biography of Edward I, "A Great and Terrible King", to widespread critical acclaim and his new book "The Norman Conquest" is every bit as engagingly written.
