Caernarfon is a special place and was a favourite of Celtic Princes and Roman Emperors. The town was famously fortified by King Edward I and was represented by Lloyd-George, the fiery Welsh Prime Minister of Britain during the First World War. The town has a regal air and historic charm about it especially around Palace St, Castle Sq and Hole in the Wall St. Within the cobbled lanes of the old walled town are some fine Georgian buildings and an interesting waterfront. Explore the town and you'll discover that it truly is the Celtic Heart of Wales. You'll find a warm Welsh welcome in shops full of traditional products

Caernarfon Castle has undergone a large scale conservation project which includes a new accessible viewing platform via a glass lift and a new cafe. It is open daily 10.00 - 16.00 with entrance approx. £12.50 pp in 2024.  

INCLUDED EXCURSION
Isle of Anglesey and Halen Môn Anglesey Pure Sea Salt
Take a tour around Anglesey, at 276 sq miles Wales' largest island and bigger than any in England. It is a stronghold of the Welsh language and culture and you'll see inspiring coastline, secluded beaches and picturesque towns and villages. The handsome Georgian town of Beaumaris is a highlight where you can  take a stroll along the seafront, taking in the pier and the views over the Menai Strait and Snowdonia before heading through the charming streets with their pastel coloured cottages. Beaumaris castle is a United Nations World Heritage site (entrance not included) and was constructed between 1295-1330 to form perfectly symmetrical concentric lines of fortification.

Go behind the scenes with a trained guide at innovative artisan food company Halen Môn - Anglesey 'Pure' Sea Salt, to get a true taste of the culinary Welsh 'gold' sea salt that began life in a saucepan on the family aga and is now enjoyed by chefs and celebrities alike in 22 countries around the world. The award-winning Saltcote and Visitor Centre is a unique building on the banks of the Menai Strait in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the tour takes approx. 45 minutes and finishes with a tutored tasting.

OPTIONAL EXCURSION
Half Day Snowdonia Scenic Drive 
Take a scenic drive through the Snowdonia National Park, via attractive Llanberis, home to the famous Snowdon Mountain Railway (not open in February) and onto attractive Betws-y-Coed, the Gateway to Snowdonia with a distinctly Alpine feel. The magical setting is enhanced by the dense Gwydyr Forest which surrounds the town. There is a diverse range of cafés, bistros, restaurants and pubs as well as independent shops retailing in crafts, clothing, gifts, and local homemade produce.
