The North Wales region
Wales is a place of natural beauty and diversity. The north east of Wales features some traditional seaside towns and spectacular views and is a great place to stay. The West coast has some great coastal walks and lovely sandy beaches to discover. Surfing and dog walking is popular in this area. The north west has highlights including Mount Snowdon and the Isle of Anglesey in this magical part of Wales; you will find a break here relaxing or if you fancy going for a climb then it would be adventurous. The south coast of Wales has sandy beaches but also the benefit of access some of Wales' largest cities including the capital Cardiff. The Brecon Beacons are full of steep mountain escarpments, waterfalls and spectacular views. In mid Wales you will begin to discover the appeal of the Valleys. And finally, Pembrokeshire has jagged coastlines, secret bays and some of the finest coastal towns line this area and you can see why people return every year to holiday there.
Caernarfon is a traditional county town with a population of some 14,000. The history of the town can be traced back to Roman times and the remains of the Segontium Fort are still visible today.
The town is best known for its great stone castle, built by Edward I who intended it to be a royal residence and seat of government for north Wales. In 1911 the investiture of the new Prince of Wales, the future King Edward VIII, took place at Caernarfon Castle. In 1969 the investiture ceremony was again held at the Castle, for the current Prince of Wales.
Caernarfon has a small harbour and at one time it was an important port, exporting slate; it has a small Maritime Museum.
The Welsh Highland Railway runs from Caernarfon on a spectacular 22 mile scenic journey, climbing over 650ft from sea level as it crosses the flanks of Mount Snowdon, before zigzagging dramatically down the steep hillside to reach Beddgelert village, the magnificent Aberglaslyn Pass and on to the new southern terminus at Pont Croesor, beside the RSPB Glaslyn Osprey Centre.
Parc Glynllifon, a 70 acre Grade I listed garden 5 miles SW of Caernarfon, is home to a wide range of exotic trees and plants, including a 100 ft monkey puzzle tree. GreenWood Forest Park is an eco-friendly, family oriented attraction with a range of features including a Green Dragon Rollercoaster, a 70m sledge run, a Jungle Boat Adventure and a big, bouncy Giant Jumper! Children can explore the timber turrets of TreeTop Towers, conquer the Crocodile Maze, and take a ride on Moon Karts.
