August 4th 2021
The enchanting town of Caernarfon serves as an ideal place to start an adventure in beautiful North Wales. Of course you could spend the whole break without leaving the walled town. Being right in the centre of the most Welsh speaking town in Wales there’s plenty to do.
Of course the first thing you may wish to delve into would be the castle and walls themselves. A designated world heritage site practically outside the door. Once you’ve seen the wall in all it’s glory a trip into town will reward you with a whole host of delightful shops and pubs, offering authentic wares and tipple respectively. The hostel itself is also a sight to behold, pretty much built into the wall. With a great atmosphere cosy and castle like. Further afield you can expect tons to do, from Anglesey Sea Zoo to the slate side scenes of Snowdon. With buckets of great walks to be found in the area. What are you waiting for?
