The Dyffryn Ogwen is famous for its classic mountain walks – the North Face of Tryfan, Y Glyderau’s Gribin and Bristly Ridges and the peaks of y Carneddau. It might seem that the valley doesn’t have so much to offer in terms of family walks – especially those families who have small children in…
The path is flat and open, the views towards the Carneddau and Glyders are phenomenal. It’s an easy going walk with lots of variety, a small estuary gave us the opportunity to pick some marsh samphire for our dinner – to my amazement the kids couldn’t get enough of these salty little shoots. Amongst the samphire shoots we spotted tiny little crabs scurrying about. I’m sure they didn’t like the attention from my kids.
Located by the sea on the estuary of the afon (river) Seiont, Caernarfon boasts a range of attractions the castle, the foreshore, the excellent pubs, restaurants, independent traders and ‘Galeri’ arts centre.
There’s also the Welsh Highland Railway, national cycle routes, I could go on…. The list of activities is mind boggling, so to help you decide here’s my top 10 things to do in Caernarfon.
