Criccieth Castle


The picturesque town of Criccieth lies at the gateway to the stunning Llyn Peninsula, Cardigan Bay, where Snowdonia meets the beautiful sandy beach.

It’s 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 a must visit and the walk to the top of the castle rewards you with breath taking views of the town, beaches and mountains.

If you fancy something sweet, then take a trip to Cadwaladers Ice Cream Parlour with views of Criccieth Castle and the main beach, it's sure to be indulging.
