Recommended
On the Menai Straits, this fine complex of fortifications is sited at the furthest point of 13C English incursion into Welsh territory. Now a Unesco World Heritage site, the strategically situated fortress of Caernarfon is the traditional backdrop for the investiture of Princes of Wales. There are expansive views from the top of its ramparts over the Isle of Anglesey and hills of Snowdonia.
