Abergele historic castle set to welcome visitors for a second time


Dean Jones

GWRYCH Castle will be holding its second open day in 30 years next week.

The event will take place on Sunday, September 21, and to mark the occasion the Gwrych Castle Preservation Trust will be launching a series of videos on YouTube to inform people what sort of work has been taking place to restore the castle over the last few months.

Mark Baker, chair of the Gwrych Castle Preservation Trust, said: “This open day is another opportunity for visitors to take a look at the work that has been done so far whilst also learning about further plans for the site.

“All proceeds from the tours will go towards the trust, and we are always looking for new volunteers to help in whatever way they can.

“Once the site is finished and the hotel is open, it is going to be one of the most beautiful and popular locations on the North Wales coastline and this would not have happened without the exceptional work of everyone involved.”

The open day will run from 12-4pm, with ground tours led by Gwrych Trust volunteers beginning every hour from 12-3pm, which will cost £5 per person.

The Trust is also looking for volunteers to help out on the day.

Anyone wishing to contribute should contact Dave Jones, volunteer coordinator at gwrychvolunteers@gmail.com.
