Caernarfon - the ‘Royal Town’ of Wales is dominated by its’ magnificent castle which still keeps an ever watchful eye on the Seiont estuary for the approach of invaders. Built by Edward I in 1283 Caernarfon was constructed as a royal palace and seat of government for Wales being fashioned to reflect the power of Rome and Constantinople.

Chosen in 1969 as the place of Investiture for HRH Prince Charles, the current Prince of Wales, the castle and town was brought to the attention of the world in a televised ceremony which displayed the formidable strength of this mighty castle.
