The principal gatehouse at Caernarfon Castle in Wales has undergone a major renovation that saw the addition of a new rooftop deck that gives visitors access to parts of the castle that have not been seen close up in centuries.

The works, dubbed The King’s Gate Project, included the installation of a lift for visitors to access the rooftop deck and new education and retail spaces, as well as accessible facilities, a new catering offer and new flooring.

The project is the result of a £5m (US$6.29m, €5.7m) investment and received financial support by the Welsh Government as well as a £1.04m (US$1.31m, €1.19m) grant from the European Regional Development Fund.

“Making our historic sites more accessible is a fantastic – and necessary – way of caring for Wales’ historical monuments for the benefit of present and future generations,” said Dawn Bowden MS, deputy minister for arts and sport.

“Enhancement projects like this one ensures that everybody can access Welsh history and learn more about the nation’s heritage.”
