Croeso i Gaernarfon  Welcome to Caernarfon

Key to symbols...

Caernarfon sits proudly with it's world famous castle on the southern shores of the Menai Straits, which separate Anglesey from the mainland. Caernarfon was in the running for capital of Wales status in the 1950's but lost out to Cardiff.

Caernarfon is the administrative centre for the county of Gwynedd. From Caernarfon the Llŷn Peninsula rolls out to the west before you, the long sandy beach at Dinas Dinlle on the mouth of the Menai Strait is just a couple of miles west, whilst Pwllheli is about 20 miles away along the A499.

However, there is much more to Caernarfon than just it's castle (which is a World Heritage Site), there is a busy town centre with many shops along small side streets and around the Maes area. The small harbour on the estuary of the Afon Seiont nestles under the grandeur of the castle. The Welsh Highland Railway has it's northern terminus on the harbour side and there are numerous other attractions locally.

Within easy reach of Caernarfon is Llanberis, at the foot of Snowdon with many popular tourist attractions, and towards the other end of the Menai Straits is the university city of Bangor, with it's bridges that carry the A55 expressway, the A5 and the railway across the water to Anglesey.
