Caernarfon

A new destination for Jay & Kay, Caernarfon is an historical city wedged between the gleaming Menai Strait and Snowdonia’s deep purple hills.  Caernarfon’s main claim to fame is its magnificent castle, one of the finest and doughtiest of Edward I’s masterpieces.  Given the town’s crucial historical importance, its proximity to Snowdonia and its reputation as a centre of Welsh culture, it’s a fantastic destination for a wonderful holiday.  It has an air of elegant charm and there’s a tangible sense of history in the streets around the castle, especially Palace Street, Castle Square and Hole in the Wall Street.  Within the cobbled lanes of the old walled town are some fine Georgian buildings, and the recently regenerated waterfront is a great place to relax and grab a bite to eat.
The Celtic Royal Hotel
The Celtic Royal is a historical hotel located within walking distance of Caernarfon’s walled town and castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site, between Snowdonia’s mountains and the sea.  Formerly known as the Uxbridge Arms Hotel, the name was changed to the Royal Celtic in honour of Queen Victoria, who stayed with her mother in 1832.  This lovely hotel has spacious, comfortable bedrooms of a contemporary theme to contrast this historical style of the building.  A beautiful indoor pool is accompanied by a Jacuzzi, steam room, sauna and air conditioned gym.
