Driving in Caernarfon:

Narrow Streets: The town's historic nature means several streets, especially within the town walls, are quite narrow. Approach with caution and be prepared for tight squeezes in some areas.
Rural Areas: The surrounding countryside may have single-track roads with passing places. Always be on the lookout for sheep, especially when closer to Snowdonia National Park, as they can be on the roads.

  1. Caernarfon Castle: The town's crown jewel, this medieval fortress is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a must-visit when in Caernarfon.

  2. Segontium Roman Fort: Located just outside the town, this ancient Roman fort provides insights into the Roman occupation of Wales.

  4. Dinas Dinlle Beach: Roughly 6 miles (10 minutes by car) from Caernarfon, this beach offers beautiful views, especially during sunset.
