CaernarfonINCLUDED Visitor DestinationThe beautiful harbourside Royal Town of Caernarfon is home to Wales’s most famous castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, mighty Caernarfon Castle commands the lion’s share of attention, but the town’s narrow streets and stylishly redeveloped waterfront also have a charm of their own and are well worth exploring. The castle, built in the 13th century by Edward I as a royal palace and military fortress, was at the core of a medieval walled town, and also the famous site of the 1969 Investiture of the present day Prince of Wales. One of the town's many attractions includes the Welsh Highland Railway which runs for 25 miles to Porthmadog through beautiful scenery. History comes alive at Caernarfon in so many ways – along the lofty wall walks, beneath the twin-towered gatehouse and within imaginative exhibitions located within the towers. The castle also houses the Regimental Museum of the Royal Welch Fusiliers, Wales’s oldest regiment.
ConwyINCLUDED Visitor DestinationThe waterside market town of Conwy is a true one-off. Well-preserved ancient walls, the most intact in Europe, enclose a town of narrow cobbled streets, nooks and crannies chock-full of historic buildings. Conwy Castle, a World Heritage Site, was a key part of the ‘iron ring’ of fortresses built around Snowdonia in the 13th century, and still dominates the picturesque setting. The quaint high street has plenty to explore, including the fascinating 16th Century Plas Mawr said to be the best example of an intact Elizabethan house where history has stood still, or make your way down to the quay to see the smallest house in Britain, just 10 feet by 6 feet and last lived in by a 6 foot 3 inch tall gentleman!
LllandudnoIn a nutshell, everyone loves Llandudno. Who could possibly argue with that while strolling along Llandudno’s elegant promenade past pastel-coloured hotels and impeccably authentic seafront architecture just like Victorians did? All that’s needed to complete the picture is a frilly parasol (for the ladies) and straw boater (for the gentlemen). Llandudno’s appearance is down to the fact that, unlike most other resorts, it has remained largely unchanged for over a century. There’s a pier (the longest in Wales) and Punch and Judy, donkey rides on the beach and canopied shopping streets just behind the prom. Put simply, Llandudno is a classic of its kind. Llandudno’s sense of harmony extends to its geography. The main North Shore beach is perfectly framed by two headlands, the Great Orme and Little Orme. Over the former – linked by a spectacular Marine Drive carved into the sea-cliff, you’ll find a second beach, the West Shore. It was here that Alice Pleasance Liddell, who inspired ‘Alice in Wonderland’, holidayed as a child. There’s an Alice Trail map and souvenir guide that’s easy to navigate – simply follow the White Rabbit’s bronze footprints around the town. The resort’s genteel appearance is deceptive. Llandudno is bursting at the seams with things to see and do. Take the San Franciscan-style tramway or alpine cable car to the summit of the Great Orme Country Park, soak up the dizzy views then disappear underground at the prehistoric copper mines. Visit Llandudno Museum or call into the nearby Home Front Experience, an immersive little museum that takes you back to World War Two. Those with sweet tooth are in for a treat at Llandudno’s very own Chocolate Experience which is divided into nine different areas each one uncovering a part of the history of chocolate. One of the UK’s best contemporary art galleries can be found behind a gold-spired Edwardian façade. MOSTYN hosts a shifting programme of exhibitions that showcase the best in contemporary art and craft from Wales and beyond. There’s also a cool café and stylish shop.
