To help you make the most of your holiday we've
compiled this page of useful information - most is
just common sense, but it's always good to be on the
safe side! If you're looking for information about
the Llŷn Peninsula itself, then see our About Llŷn
As with the rest of the UK, in case of emergency
you dial 999 for the police, ambulance, fire and
also coastguard services.
If you are bringing your dog with you to Llŷn,
make sure you check with your accommodation
providers that this is acceptable. It is also worth
thinking about what you will be doing with your dog
if you plan to visit any places where dogs are not
allowed. Remember, dogs die in hot cars and even on
a cloudy day the sun may come out enough to double
the temperature inside your car within less than 10
minutes. If you see a distressed dog in a car on a
hot day you should ring the RSPCA on 0870 55 55 999.

accommodation - remembering to recycle what you can.
Ditch the car!
There is so much out there that cannot be explored
by car and some is so close you can walk or cycle
there. Why not use public transport - there are
frequent bus services to nearly all of the villages
on the peninsula, or how about a day on the train
taking in Harlech Castle, the amusements at Barmouth
or even a light lunch in Aberdyfi?
We have some of the least light pollution anywhere
in the UK here in west Wales. So remember to switch
off any lights you don't use, and then take
advantage of the great views upwards on a clear
Buy Local and get a
true Taste of Wales!
The Llŷn Peninsula can boast many foods that are
produced right here! Why buy something that has
travelled hundred of miles when there is a local

economy - you can also eat, sight-see and will probably be
staying locally too.
