Drive carefully everyone. It’s a full class and we are looking forward to your being with us here at New Legacy. Most likely you will be traveling along the A55 to the turnoff for Bangor and then you will follow the A5 toward the city. This is where this post plugs in.
After the A55 travel across the first roundabout and to the 2nd roundabout and take the 2nd exit signed for Penrhyn Castle, Taly bont and Llandygai – 1 mile.
At 30 meters (100 feet) turn an immediate and sharp left into the entryway of the castle.
Go through the massive gates, they will be open.
Follow the welcome signs along the lane through the woods.
Stop for the trees.
Please observe the signage to the car park and the visitor centre. You will park here and walk up to the castle. 10 minutes max unless you stop too much along the paths.
Car parking is free and visitor centre staff man the car parks office most of the time. Follow the footpath and signs to the castle.
At the height of the hill, ignore the directions to the castle entry, we use an entrance around the back.
Go around the corner…
…past these double gates.
Turn yet another left to the back of the stable block and follow the castle walls.
Here is John at the entrance – follow him.
You can either enter through the glass doors and through the cafe or…
…turn left and go through this door and on through two more doors into…
…the New Legacy Workshop.
While you are here we will take breaks and lunch. The toilet facilities are through this arch, which also leads to the cafe.
