Our trip to Erdigg Castle in Wrexham – a National Trust location
We had a splendid day at Penrhyn Castle, a National Trust venue in Bangor with gardens, a nature walk, a railway museum and a stylish interior.
After the castle visit, we stopped off for a 2-course meal on the return journey, which was appreciated by everyone.
