Castles and colours

Caernarfon is a royal town and port in Gwynedd, Wales on the eastern shore of the Menai Strait, opposite the Isle of Anglesey.

There’s a stately castle that sits above the town which was constructed between 1283 and 1330 by King Edward I.

The Edwardian town and castle was the administrative centre of north Wales, and as a result the castle defences were built on a grand scale.

It’s a nice little town to explore for a few hours, or as a base to explore the local area.

The Travelodge is ideally located near the water edge.
