Other Places of Interest
The historic Harlech Castle is located just five minutes walk from Maelgwyn House. The newly installed ‘floating’ bridge at Harlech Castle makes access to the castle truly available for all. The bridge connects the castle with the brand new visitor centre in the former Castle Hotel building. Along with Caernarfon Castle, Conwy Castle and Beaumaris Castle, this monument has been part of the Castles and Town Walls of Edward 1 World Heritage Site since 1986.
A short drive away is the famous town of Portmeirion (as seen on TV’s ‘The Prisoner’, and more recently in the drama series ‘Cold Feet’), and the town of Porthmadog. During peak season (Late March to Late October), you can learn more about this unique village with free walking and train tours. The Visitor Centre is open all year and can help with more information, books and maps.
