Caernarfon Tourist Information

Best known for its breathtaking, iconic castle, Caernarfon is recognised as one of the most impressive towns in Wales. The castle is described as having a ‘commanding presence’, and its large size owes to the fact that it was a royal palace and seat of government alongside its use as a military and defensive building. The town is just a few minutes from the Snowdonia National Park, and with over 80% of its population speaking Welsh it’s the perfect place to experience the heritage and culture of the country.

The Welsh Highland Railway, offering steam train travel through Snowdonia, begins its journey at Caernarfon. There’s also a miniature railway at Gypsy Wood – a 20-acre activity park including woodland and fairy glen picnic spots, a petting zoo and a cafe and play area.

At the Inigo Jones Slate Works, visitors can purchase slate produce and enjoy a tour of the workshop, and at the Airworld Aviation Museum you’ll have the opportunity to view aircraft and to step inside to see the inner workings of new and vintage planes. Caernarfon offers opportunity to learn, explore and play in a town that’s truly Welsh in history, culture and heritage. Find and compare Caernarfon accommodation, and book your stay today.
