With the weather being blissfully on our side this spring, the coast of North Wales is the perfect place to spend your free time. If you’re looking for an escape, try our Lodges in Snowdonia, you won’t be disappointed. With an array of sightseeing opportunities, activities and general relaxation, this historic region has all the right stuff to keep you coming back, year after year.
When staying in Snowdonia, Caernarfon must be near the top of the to-do list. This beautiful Royal town dates back to the Romans but is more commonly recognised for its impressive castle; built by Edward 1st. The once mottle and bailey castle was transformed within the reign of Edward into the striking structure it is today.
Year upon year, the castle is visited by tourists from all over the world. It’s no wonder why, a fortress of this magnitude and a UNESCO World Heritage site no less. Culture and history collide here, making this a place to bring the whole family. With events happening year-round, you’ll find something to keep you captivated – or maybe just captive!
Held within the castle itself, is the Royal Welch Fusiliers Museum, through the medium of film, sound, and models, you can learn about a 300-year history of service by Wales’ oldest infantry regiment. Learn how the Regiment won 14 Victoria Crosses and their unique traditions.
If culture is your passion, explore Caernarfon town itself, long walks through the streets will delight and excite you – with a wide selection of cafes, restaurants, quirky pubs and lots of activities, you’ll find more than enough to keep your interests peaked. We understand that sometimes you need a break from history, so there’s also the Redline centre nearby; nothing quite says relaxation like zooming around an indoor karting track. Competition flows freely here, that race to the finish line brings out the competitive spirit in everyone. Or for the little ones, head to The Fun Centre, the indoor soft play area will tire them out, use up all that energy.
The town of Caernarfon gives visitors the chance to explore slightly further afield too – a nice trip to Dinas Dinelle beach is as relaxing as it can get. The coastal views are nigh-on impossible to beat. You can venture even further to the stunning Isle of Anglesey, head to Llanddwyn Bay for beautiful beaches and panoramic views.
Caernarfon is a town with something for everyone, you won’t go home feeling disappointed.
