Rhuddlan Castle

Discover when, why and where Rhuddlan Castle was built and explore what remains today.
The second castle to be started in Wales by the English King, Edward (Longshanks) is at Rhuddlan.
Perhaps not as grand as Edward’s other castles of Conwy, Caernarfon, Beaumaris or Harlech, this castle was perhaps the most important.
It is where the Statute of Rhuddlan was signed and the Welsh Princes ceded their lands to the English crown.
