In the grounds you will find peaceful woodland trails, exotic tree and shrub collections, a Victorian walled garden with ornamental ponds and a lovely Rhododendron Walk with rhododendrons and azaleas. The views from the grounds over the coast towards Snowdonia are also magnificent. You can also tour the castle with its beautiful carvings, mock-Norman furniture, collection of paintings and model railway museum.
To continue your walking in the area you could head to the nearby Plas Newydd where there are lovely woodland walks and pretty gardens, with views of the Menai Strait.
You could also pick up the North Wales Path and follow the waymarked trail east to Aber Falls. The falls are one of the walking highlights of the area and well worth a visit.
