Our aim here at the British Coast Guide is to create a portal to the coast, providing visitors with introductions to areas of the coast they will not know about. Using video, both of our own production and those of tourism boards and locals. Around this presentation we would love to promote your business...

Description

Welcome to Gwynedd's, Coast and Seaside...

The heart of Gwynedd is the mountain range of Snowdonia, but around its periphery are some fascinating coastal resorts, attractions and places of interest. The Menai Strait is a narrow stretch of tidal water, some 16 miles long that separates the Isle of Anglesey from the mainland. At its northern end is the University city of Bangor, and nearby are the road and rail bridges connecting to Holyhead, the port for Ireland. The ‘old’ road bridge was constructed by Thomas Telford in 1826, the first suspension bridge, and the Britannia railway bridge followed 24 years later, built by Robert Stephenson. The Britannia Bridge was destroyed by fire in 1970, and was rebuilt to carry both rail and road traffic in a ‘double deck’ configuration.

At the southern end of the Menai Strait is Caernarfon, with its medieval fortress, in which Prince Charles was invested as Prince of Wales in 1969. The town also houses the Regimental Museum of the Royal Welch Fusiliers.

Extending thirty miles into the Irish Sea, separating Caernarfon Bay from Cardigan Bay, is the Lleyn or Llyn Peninsula, encircled by a way-marked 146 mile coastal path running from Caernarfon to Porthmadog. Bardsey Island has been a place of pilgrimage for centuries, a monastery having been built there in 542 AD. Along the north and south coasts of the Lleyn are beaches and resorts, principal among them is Pwllheli. This part of Wales is Welsh-speaking, and the Welsh Nationalist party Plaid Cymru was founded in Pwllheli in 1925.

Tremadog Bay is guarded by castles at Criccieth and Harlech, and inland there are a number of narrow-gauge railways. Portmeirion is famous for its pottery, and the Italianate village was famously the location of the 1960s television series The Prisoner. Beaches stretch along the coast below Harlech Castle, down to Barmouth, and beyond to Tywyn and Aberdovey.
