Attractions

It goes almost without saying that the closest local attraction is, of course, Snowdonia. The mountain peak is the highest in Wales and the second highest in the UK. Sporting its very own famous mountain railway and a cafe at its top, Snowdonia is one of the most popular holiday and enthusiast attractions in the whole of North Wales.

Just outside the Snowdonia National Park is the richly historical town of Caernarfon. The medieval settlement originally achieved notoriety for being an English stronghold from which to launch campaigns to quell the rebellious Northern Welsh tribes. More recently, Caernarfon was the location for Prince Charles' investiture as the new Prince of Wales in the 1960s. For visitors, the magnificent 13th century castle is a must visit, while the picturesque town offers a number of other gems including an insight into traditional Welsh fishing.

In and around Caernarfon are a number of enchanting gardens to spend an afternoon exploring. Caernarfon has its own Blue-Flag beach, while slightly further down the coast is Porthmadog and Pwhelli. Both offer fantastic beaches and superb seaside sports.

For those looking for something a bit different, nearby Anglesey offers a model village, while Portmeirion's famous village (the set for the cult 'Prisoner' series in the 1960s) is a major attraction in its own right.
