Criccieth is a charming and compact town resting on a finger of land that points towards Ireland in the northwest corner of Wales. It features a romantic castle perched high on a hill overlooking the sea and Cardigan Bay. This landmark fortress built by Welsh prince, Llywelyn the Great boasts a twin-towered gatehouse and promises stunning views. Criccieth is the perfect base for exploring the dramatic coastline as well as for discovering Snowdonia National Park and experiencing the mysterious Mediterranean style village of Portmeirion where the classic TV series The Prisoner was filmed.
