UK travel information

Harlech is a popular town and seaside resort located in Gwynedd North West Wales. Harlech luckily sits in the stunning areas of Tremadog Bay and the Snowdonia National Park and as a result is the ideal place to enjoy an outdoor retreat, with both coastal and country activities to be enjoyed.

Harlech hotels

The town itself is best known for Harlech Castle, begun in 1283 the castle was originally built next to the sea, but geological processes have changed the shape of the coastline, and the castle now lies on a cliff face, about half a mile inland.

For a spot of culture visit the Theatre Harlech that is located on the Harlech College campus and stages a selection of plays, music and films throughout the year. Other attractions in Harlech include its gorgeous beach backed with sand dunes, perfect for sunbathing and the Rhinogydd range of mountains lies to the east.
