Travel Tips for Caernarfon
Palace street is the main road within the town walls. Here you can browse the antique shops and the indoor markets, art galleries and enjoy a drink at one of the many cafes.
Watch out for the conbbles though - not suitable for high heels!
Menai Strait Cruise
The grandiose castle is set on a peninsula bounded by the Menai Strait and short cruises to the south west entrance of the Menai Straits - approx 40 minutes duration - can be taken, and if the weather is kind you will enjoy good views of Anglesey and snowdonia range.
Caernarfon Castle - Queens Gate
The Queens Gate is another great gateway to the castle, which was never quite finished. Its height meant it had to be reached by a great stone ramp. It was the built on the site of an earlier Norman structure.
Lon Las Menai
Lon Las Menai is a fabulous walking/cycling path which runs for 4 and a half miles from Caernarfon to the village of Felinheli. Adjacent to the crystal blue waters of the Menai Straits, it really does look like a great place for watching wildlife whilst getting some exercise too.
The Caernarfon end of Lon Las Menai starts from the Public car park next to the shore; near the Morrisons superstore... hey I'm a poet!!
Caernarfon Castle - East Gate
This was the principal landward entrance to the town. Here Greengate Street passes under a stone bridge, which incorporates the final arch of a medieval bridge that was built in 1301 to carry the approach to the walled town across the low-lying river Cadnant (which is now culverted over). The rooms above the gate were used to accommodate the exchequer, which from 1284 served as the administrative and financial centre of the new counties of Anglessey, Caernarfon and Merioneth.
