Town Information

Harlech is a wonderful place for a holiday at the seaside. It is found on Tremadog Bay within Snowdonia National Park in Wales. Harlech Castle is a famous and impressive clifftop UNESCO World Heritage Site with a visitor centre. Harlech also has a large, sandy peaceful beach with beautiful sand dunes, a National Nature Reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest. The beach is an ideal place for children to play and adults to sit back and relax. Near the beach there is a shop, cafe and the internationally famous Royal St Davids Golf Club, one of the finest links courses in Britain. The town contains Ffordd Pen Llech, a street which descends the rock spur to the north of the castle, and has the steepest signed gradient on a public road in the United Kingdom. Other attractions include Theatr Harlech, which stages a varied selection of plays, music and films throughout the year, craft shops and an excellent leisure centre with indoor pool, cafe and climbing wall. Visit Y Lasynys Fawr, a historic house dating from the 16th century and former home of the author Ellis Wynne. A mile south of Harlech, you will find the Llanfair Slate Caverns; a former mine filled with underground tunnels and caverns to explore.
