Denbighshire is home to some spectacular ancient castles built as fortifications during the long years of land disputes. Among them you can find
Dinas Bran - The ruins of this enigmatic stronghold loom high on a hilltop outside of Llangollen and date back to the Iron Age. Prepare for a walk!
Denbigh Castle - Along with over half a mile of town walls, this fortress is of classic Edwardian proportions. Its triple towered gatehouse is striking.
Rhuddlan Castle - This concentric castle was built with seaborne access to supply the soldiers defending this fiercely contested strategic location. cadw.wales.gov.uk
