Criccieth

Known as The Pearl of Wales on the shores of the magnificent Snowdonia National Park with its astounding natural beauty, the picturesque town of Criccieth lies at the gateway to the stunning Llyn Peninsula, Cardigan Bay, where Snowdonia meets the beautiful sandy beach.

The town of Criccieth is dominated by the impressive remains of its 13th Century castle, dating from the reign of Llewelyn the Great (1200-1240). The museum attached to the entrance is well worth a visit, as is the castle itself and a walk to the top rewards you with breath taking views of the town, beaches and mountains.
