The coastal area of Gwynedd and Conwy is where the Mountains reach the sea and where you will find the coastal path winding its way all along the coast past glorious sandy beaches, rocky coves, fishing villages, harbours and holiday... resorts, but look a little further and you will find Welsh farms that offer farmhouses for holidays with a difference.
The area is filled with lovely attractions that history buffs, nature lovers, avid golfers, and water sports enthusiasts will love. There are beautiful coastal resorts that will leave you breathless and quaint villages that will take you back in time. These include the Victorian resort of Llandudno, the medieval walled town of Conwy, the small resort of Colwyn Bay and the bucket and spade resorts of Rhyl and Prestatyn.
The castle and walls of Conwy were built by King Edward I as he sought to conquer Wales. They make the town one of the few intact medieval towns in the whole of Europe.
Conwy Suspension Bridge is also famous as it replaced the ferry, the only means of crossing the river then. It was one of the world’s first suspension bridges and was built by Thomas Telford, the same architect who built the Menai Suspension Bridge. The bridge has a toll keeper’s house which was recently refurbished in an ancient style.
The coastal resorts have magnificent beaches and plenty of natural beauty. They are popular with families thanks to their superb amenities and attractions. They offer a variety of activities ranging from ballroom dancing to donkey rides.
Caernarfon’s most striking feature is its medieval castle that was built by King Edward I. It was the venue of many ancient battles and survived numerous attacks. The castle is a feast for the eyes and its towers can be seen by people entering the town.
