Reasons for trip

We went to the Penrhyn Castle last month because we were on the way to visit Snowdonia National Park. Unfortunate the weather was very cold that day and it was snowing in some parts of Wales. Fortunately most of the roads to Bangor were opened. We manage to find the castle quite easily. As we arrived at the entrance the reception women warned us that inside the castle is just as cold as the outside. As we enter into the building, we realised that she was right. The castle was built between 1822 and 1837. It was a massive place. It was once owned by Lord Penrhyn but now it belongs to the National Trust. The decorations and the carvings were most spectacular. We spent over 3 hours walking around and admiring the architectures, furnishings, the decorations and the designs. We also enjoyed the beautiful views through some of the windows. After ward we stopped at the café and had a warm drink each to warm up as well as to rest our feet. It was a wonderful visit. We will certainly go back again preferably when the weather is not so cold.
