 Beaumaris is situated strategically in flat, marshy land on the south edge of the Isle of Anglesey. The castle is basically two concentric wings of walling with flanking towers and gatehouses. The inner ring, square in plan, with walls about 4.9 meters (16 ft) thick and nearly 13.1 meters ​ (43 ft) high, has cylindrical towers on the four corners, D-end towers mid-wall on the west and east and, on the north and south, a substantial twin cylindrical-towered gatehouse mid-wall, the northern one completed, the southern one lacking its rear portions. None of the towers or gatehouses was completed to its full height. Both gatehouses were fitted with two suites of apartments, making them residential. Indeed, the gatehouses were the strongest parts of the castle, acting as great towers.\\ Beaumaris is situated strategically in flat, marshy land on the south edge of the Isle of Anglesey.
