For convenience our main castle index is arranged alphabetically with a hyperlink from the top menu to specific letters of the alphabet. The amount of information and number of photographs vary for each castle listed. Select the map page to help pinpoint locations for many of the better-known castles, or click on the map below to display castles of a certain region. You may notice that not all of the castles listed below are found in Wales. These are the Marcher castles found on the English side of the Anglo-Welsh border, many of which were constructed specifically to help control this often volatile and much-contested region. These English castles are denoted by the flag of St. George.

The conditions of castles listed herein vary greatly from nearly-complete fortresses to those with scant remains and others that can only be identified by their surviving earthworks. Nevertheless, some of these "vanished castles" were significant and played important roles in both the conquest of Wales and/or the defense of Wales by her native rulers. As such, they should not be marginalized today simply because they lack the impressive remains of other better-known fortresses.

As a supplement to this index we also offer a more complete Welsh Castle Database which includes over 400 known castles and castle sites in Wales and the Marches.

Castles listed in the index accompanied by this icon feature high quality digital photographs.
