Bangor and Caernarfon




Walks around Bangor and Caernarfon

Twenty two walks exploring the varied landscape and fascinating history of  North West Wales extending from the Menai Strait to Bethesda and other slate quarrying communities lying at the edge of Snowdonia National Park. It features the small cathedral city of Bangor and the fortified walled town of Caernarfon, with its impressive late 13th C castle, now a designated World Heritage Site.  In the 19th C both communities, along with Port Dinorwic became important slate ports serving vast inland quarries at a time when North West Wales was the main producer of slate in the world.


There are town trails, walks through woodland and river valleys, across foothills offering panoramic views. Some follow old miners’ paths and sections of former railways, now surfaced recreational trails such as Lon Las Ogwen and Lon Eifion, the latter offering close views of the steam hauled narrow gauge Welsh Highland Railway.
