Medieval Castles and Tea Rooms by the Sea…What to Wear in Beaumaris, Wales
Beaumaris is a small, historic town situated on the Menai Strait in North Wales. It is well known for its medieval castle, yachting, two golf courses, and a charming selection of shops and cafes. When we first arrived in Beaumaris, I felt underdressed in my backpacking attire (Lululemon yoga pants, running shoes, t-shirt, and light rain jacket). Once I changed into a pair of tailored jeans, a blazer, scarf, and black flats, I didn’t feel as out of place. I would have been thrilled, however, if I had carried a strand of pearls to wrap into a bracelet or a fun cocktail ring for this particular part of the journey.
If I were to return, I would bring a couple tunic dresses that could be worn with leggings and a long-ish cardigan. I would also bring a pair of red flats and a pair of blue or brown wedges. I would not recommend wearing boots to this cute historic village. A loose-fitting black, grey, or navy blazer would be a great piece to have as well.
Because the sea air will produce cold winds and the weather in general will produce scattered rain showers, you will not want to leave home without your umbrella and a warm scarf. Beaumaris is also a great place to express your nautical side. Navy blue and white with splashes of red via a handbag or shoes will make packing easy, and it’ll make you feel like you are adding a little Americana to a quaint Welsh village.
