Well preserved and still present in many places. Cannot walk on the ramparts (unlike Chester) but still lots of interesting parts.

A truly lovely walk can be had, around the walls of Caernarfon, but give yourself time to take in everything you can see. Very photogenic. Highly recommended.

Yes, on some parts. You can also climb some of the towers (tight worn curly stair cases - as you'd expect in a castle of this age)...but bear in mind it's not for the faint hearted...I did it with a determined 3 year old... More
