History and Culture
Snowdonia and North Wales have so much culture to explore. We’ve tried to round up a few of the local options to Cae Gwyn but there are quite literally hundreds more. Here we have castle visits, underground labyrinths, Italian designed villages, food and music festivals and a new take on alternative technology.
North Wales is not short of History offerings and King Arthur’s Labrynth – the underground storytelling adventure does not disappoint. 30 minutes from Cae Gwyn.
With over 600 (!) castles, you won’t have to travel far to find one. From royal castles, defence castles and ‘Faux-castles’ – built for show rather than defence.
Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, the eccentric architect who created the Italian style village of Portmeirion on the North Wales coast, between 1925 and 1975 and is now owned by a charitable trust.
With a focus on offering practical solutions to a zero-carbon world, CAT (Centre for Alternative Technology) offers different tours and activities to suit the whole family. 30 minutes from Cae Gwyn.
North Wales is no stranger to hosting some of the UK’s best festivals; from music to food to walking.
Of course, food deserves a special mention! iconic food festivals across North Wales can be found here.
