North Wales Castles
North Wales’ two most famous defensive castles! The first stop of the day is Conwy Castle, a World Heritage site and an outstanding example of medieval military architecture. You will have time here to explore the castle and have a look around the town of Conwy itself … perhaps visit Britain’s smallest house too! The afternoon will then be spent at Caernarfon Castle, a World Heritage site and possibly Wales’ most famous castle! You will have time here to walk the walls and the castle’s many impressive towers. A great trip for children too!
