The Dragon Has Landed

It has been rumoured that a dragon has been roaming the Welsh countryside. He’s been travelling the length and breadth of this country and you can see from this video what he’s been up to.

Dragon Spotted

He’s been spotted at Caernarfon Castle and at Beaumaris Castle but he has declared Harlech Castle to be his permanent residence. Fairplay to him, he will allow you to visit his home. Just beware of the talons!

And here’s a little video of the smoking dragon.

If you can get a chance to visit him then please do so because he is AWESOME! So lifelike! The one small thing that would make him absolutely real is blinking eyes. But oh my word I could sit there all day with him. It’s such a shame he’s not at Caernarfon otherwise I would be visiting him regularly.

You can find the dragon at Harlech Castle – website / Facebook / Twitter

Are you brave enough to face the dragon?

    We were brave enough! My daughter and her friend fought him off at Chepstow castle. While he was subdued we got this victors photo with him before he shook it off and flew away to find another castle to live in! #KCACOLS

      Well if you’re up for a visit to the North Wales castles in the coming month then you should also check out the Weeping Window poppy display at Caernarfon Castle. It’s there until 20th Nov I believe.

      But yes that eye! Had it been blinking I would’ve sworn it was real!
