The Majestic Caernarfon Castle

After all these years Caernarfon Castle’s immense strength remains undimmed.


Wales is steeped in history and myth. Legends of old, castles and stories. There are so many stories to discover and wonderful places to visit around North and Mid Wales. From the legends of Arthur, Merlin and the tales of the Mabinogion to modern day stories including the investiture of The Prince of Wales at Caernarfon Castle. Before the investiture the Prince had spent a term at the University College of Wales at Aberystwyth, learning to speak Welsh.

Each castle and grand house in North and Mid Wales has its own story and struggles through the ages. With many having been opened up as attractions it is easy to visit and soak up the history and legends that make the area so rich in heritage.
