Parking: Free on-street parking is available for up to six cars at the front of The Castle. A long-stay car park is located at the Slate Quay to the rear of The Castle.
Access: Access to The Castle entrance is via two sets of steps, or via a purpose built access ramp, which enables wheelchair access from the kerb-side at street level to the castle main entrance.
The Royal Welch Fusiliers Museum is committed to providing access to all groups wherever possible. Housing the museum in a medieval castle provides some unique access challenges. Movement through some parts of the museum will involve negotiating steep
steps and narrow walk-ways, which are also open to the elements. As such some areas of the museum are not accessible to wheelchair users or visitors with limited mobility. We have recently been able to open wheelchair access to the ground floor of the museum which tells the story of the Regiment in the Second World War and Post-War era. Assistance Dogs welcome.
Toilets: Visitor toilets accessible within the castle grounds via 2 flights of metal steps. Regretfully they are inaccessible for wheelchair users.
Local Attractions: Other attractions in the vicinity include Conwy, Beaumaris and Harlech Castles, The Welsh Highland Railway and Ffestiniog Railway, The National Slate Museum, Electric Mountain and the Snowdon Mountain Railway at Llanberis, Plas Mawr in Conwy, Port Meirion and Snowdonia National Park.
