Information
CAERNARFON Inhabited continuously since pre-Roman times, the Royal Town of Caernarfon is the jewel in North Wale’s crown. Dominated by the world famous medieval fortress built for King Edward I, the town’s Royal connections stretch back to when it was the realm of ancient Celtic chieftains. However it was in 1969, with the investiture of Charles as Prince of Wales at the castle, that Caernarfon became a truly international destination. A busy market town and major tourist centre, Caernarfon’s idyllic coastal location overlooking the Menai Straits and the Isle of Angelsey, makes it a magnet for sailing, boating and waters sports enthusiasts and accordingly provides superb marine facilities. Indeed it was in 1933, Group Captain Lionel Brabazon-Rees set sail from The Royal Welsh Yacht Club, in his 34-foot ketch "May" to Florida and become the first man to sail across the Atlantic single handed. Doc Fictoria is set alongside the beautiful harbour and offers the range of marine services one would expect from a town that maintains such high standards including 46 pontoon berths with electricity and fresh water, state of the art security and a publicly accessed visitor’s pontoon. The Caernarfon Sailing Club is located nearby as are Plas Menai National Watersports Centre and Slate Quay. There are also several sailing schools that cater for all levels and experience. In and around the town there is a wealth of things to see and do. Green Wood Forest Park is set in 17 magical acres that combines woodland adventures with attractions and rides. Other ‘must do’s’ include the narrow gauge Welsh Highland Railway, Hwylfan Fun Centre, which is the largest of its kind in North Wales, Gypsy Wood Park at the foothills of Snowdonia and The Faenol - North Wales’ premier concert venue. As you would expect the accommodation in Caernarfon is excellent from camping to bed and breakfast, budget to four star hotels. There is a pleasant, vibrant bustle to the town centre. The shopping is wonderfully eclectic, the cafes and pubs ooze warmth and hospitality, the entertainment is diverse, matched only by the international dining, which is on a par with some of Europe’s most gastronomic major cities. It has to be said that Caernarfon offers visitors a rich, fulfilling experience with an insight to the culture and history of this fascinating, ancient country that is second to none.

Black Boy Inn by Harbour Guides Crew
Staying at Black Boy Inn at present,cannot fault it.
Rooms are fantastic with cinema style large screen TV'S.
All of the breakfast options are more than enough to keep you going throughout the day,but i would suggest The One Eyed Sailor ( not a wind up )
