Publisher's Summary

Wales is some country. Beautiful, historic and with a tradition all of its own. A big part of that history and tradition are the many magnificent castles which can be found throughout Wales attracting visitors from all over the world. No visit is complete unless the traveler sees some of these castles. I am no exception - I love Wales and have personally visited many of the castles there. So I have put together this book to give you an introduction to 20 of my favorite Welsh castles.
All the top Welsh castles are included - a few are listed below though 20 are included in my book. Whether you are planning on a visit to Wales or have an interest in Welsh history then you should enjoy Castles in Wales - a Travellers' Guide.
Here are just some of the Welsh castles you will read about inside...

Conwy Castle
Caernarfon Castle
Beaumaris Castle
Chepstow Castle
Harlech Castle
And another 15 more Welsh Castles...
A 20 castle tour in around 13,000 words. A brief history of each, main features, opening times, how to find them.

Excellent and very informative.

Would you listen to Castles in Wales again? Why?

Yes. This audiobook is packed with interesting information on 20 of the author’s favourite castles in Wales, and gives not only a comprehensive history of each one but also a lot of practical information.

However, you are travelling, by foot, bus, car or coach the author has furnished you with all you need to enjoy and explore these wonderful historic monuments. The opening times and entry prices are also included as well, as well as indications of the levels of fitness you would need to have, and wheelchair access.

Have you listened to any of Phillip J Mather’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have to say, perhaps because I am English, I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook being read by the English narrator Phillip J. Mather, whose deep, classical voice suited this subject so well.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to it in one sitting because I love history, however, each castle has its own section so it is perfect as a travel guide.

Any additional comments?

Having enjoyed many childhood holidays in Wales and recently having had my daughter at university at Bangor I have had the opportunity to visit many of the castles mentioned and look forward to enjoying visiting Wales in the future and using this audiobook as my guide.
