There is also a fabulous outdoor market you can visit in the middle of the town to give you that much needed local connection. Caernarfon is also such a pretty town in which to drive around and explore the sights, from the rugged mountains to the pebbled beaches and sheltered harbours. If you love to fish, then be sure to book one of the many fishing experiences.
