Castles & Heritage
Wales is famous for Castles and we have several within easy reach; Caernarfon Castle, Criccieth Castle, Dolbadarn Castle and Conwy Castle to name but a few. Four World Heritage Sites are in North Wales, the Castles of Caernarfon, Conwy, Beaumaris (which also has a gaol you can visit) and Harlech.
There are a number of National Trust properties within easy reach, Plas Newydd on Anglesey and Penrhyn Castle at Bangor.
For an exciting underground experience and a fascinating glimpse of the life of miners of old, visit the Sygun Copper Mines, only a mile outside of the village. A short drive away at Llanberis you can visit the National Slate Museum one of Wales’ leading national museums and a great day out for all the family.
Not quite history being at the other end of the historical scale, but Llanberis is also home to the Electric Mountain tours of the pumped storage power station tours.
