A visit to Bodelwyddan Castle makes a great day out! Inside the castle you'll discover historic halls and important Welsh artworks, amazing decoration and more. The castle is an opportunity to view many significant collections. New for 2018 is our amazing WW1 Exhibition 'From Civilian to Combatant' set over three galleries and showcasing some unique artefacts from The Great War. We're also a wonderful museum of Victorian splendour, well worth exploring as a country mansion of note.
