The Ideal Full Day Out in Caernarfon

Breakfast at the Black Boy Inn

If you are staying at a hotel in town, or even more conveniently our very own hotel, the black boy in Caernarfon. We have a splendid breakfast menu available and we encourage guests to enjoy this.

A morning walk on Dinas Dinlle Beach

The light is most beautiful at Dinas Dinlle first thing in the morning, and thus, we recommend that our guests take a short jaunt over to the coast of Dinas Dinlle. You can enjoy stunning views down the Llyn Peninsula coastline, with outstanding views of yr life as well as over to the cusp of Fort Belan and across the Foryd Bay and Snowdonia. This is the site of an iron age hillfort that, in legend, was home to Lleu Llaw Gyffes. 

A trip to Caernarfon Castle

This medieval fortification is among the most amazing sights in all of North Wales, its imposing towers make quite a scene indeed. The history of the castle is nothing short of impressive.

Built-in 1283 by Edward I Longshanks as a means to oppress the local rebellious populous.  The castle was however taken over during a rebellion. It’s worth noting that to this day, it’s the welsh flag that flies over Caernarfon Castle.

Lunch at the Black Boy Inn

Nip back to the Black Boy Inn for a quick lunch, maybe fish and chips would be a good choice? How about a Salad. There’s something for everyone.

Watch a movie at Galeri Caernarfon

With all the fantastic films that are set to come out soon, a cheeky trip to the cinema at Galeri Caernarfon is a great idea. There are family films to go and watch with the kids, romantic films to watch with that special someone, and action and comedies to watch with your buddies – just about anything you could ask for, all told.

Watching the sunset on the Porth yr Aur

The sun slowly disappearing beyond the horizon is a sight to behold indeed, you can sit on a bench, or perched on the wall while watching the sunset, whilst on the banks of the glorious Menai Strait. You’ll be able to see the distant headlands of Llanddwyn Island on a clear day.

Dinner and drinks at the Black Boy Inn

The Black Boy Inn is arguably the best place to eat a hearty dinner in Caernarfon town, thanks to its comprehensive menu, a delicious selection of starters, mains and desserts, and a lovely array of drinks. The best spot in town to enjoy an evening of merriment and food.
