The castle, on the UNESCO heritage list, is one of the fortress towns built by Edward I in Wales. Although never finished, it is the finest example of a concentric castle. It is surrounded by a moat and has a fortified dock, with moorings for ships of up to 40 tons. Extensive accommodation facilities were planned in the gatehouses. The Great Hall, impressive enough as it stands, would have risen to twice its present height.
