A One week holiday based on Caernarfon, North Wales - Wednesday 19th August 2009
Home Wales Saturday Sunday Monday Tuesday Thursday Friday Saturday
We agreed to meet Gareth and family in Conwy during the morning so we drove there and parked in the car park close to the castle walls. After a disappointing coffee in a tearoom we walked down to visit the National Trust medieval merchants house, Aberconwy House. This was quite interesting with various rooms arranged at dates through the history of the house. It was built shortly after the castle and walls (1280) and altered and enlarged later. It was a Temperance Hotel during the Victorian period. We also walked over the suspension bridge (Thomas Telford 1826) and visited the toll cottage. We all met up for a nice lunch in a tearoom in Castle Street where the children behaved very well (and the adults as well!). Afterwards We walked the walls whilst Gareth et al visited Plas Mawr (Cadw Elizabethan house).
