Welsh Castle Quest day 12 – Caernarfon Castle

Greetings Fellow Adventurers!

Today we finished off our walk from Conwy to Caernarfon, and finished with a visit to the magnificent Caernarfon Castle. For a fuller report on what we got up to – my wife has written another of her excellent posts about it here!

As it stands we had a nice last yomp along the WCP from Y Felinheli. The path was mainly set aside from the main road as it followed the same route as Cycleway No. 8, so the path was nicely tarmacked and the walking was easy.

The route took us through fields just set back from the Menai Straights and eventually brought us into the Harbour area of the town.

As always Maddie was pleased to be by the sea – LOOK, BOATS!!!

Caernarfon Castle was as wonderful as ever – we spent a merry couple of hours exploring and taking pictures, although we did have one issue with the local gulls pinching our multi-pack of Square crisps and making off with a bag.

The Castle really is huge!

It really is a Harbour town, with boats pretty much everywhere you look…

Once we’d finished, we rounded off our really enjoyable day with a glass of wine (of course) whilst we waited for a taxi to take us back to the car.

Until tomorrow my Friends!

  1. As much as l like birds those seagulls are becoming seriously dangerous. Did you read about the supposed gull attack on a small dog here in Torbay last week? Another smashing blog to complememnt Alli’s Stuart

    1. Thanks Malc – nice of you to say.

      I hadn’t heard about that attack. I wonder about the full story though – My first thought was what was the dog doing to the Gulls? They’ve always been aggressive though – I remember sitting in the cafe on the mount and having an ice-cream pulled out of my hands.

    1. It is indeed massive. There are some areas that are off limits but there is a lot to explore. Most of the towers are open as are the battlements. Most of the walls and towers also have little rooms etc. to explore.
