Caernarfon Castle

We will be heading up north next month for a long weekend.

The castle is one of the places I'm looking forward to see.  

Has anyone been? Also I'm going to visit the Welsh Mountain Zoo, it looks very interesting.

Its probably one of the best castles in the area and its not bad at all as ruins go. The much smaller castle of Criccieth is also worth a look see.

I'm 15 minutes from Caernarfon castle (smug smile). It is one hell of a castle. Segontium, the Roman site is also in the town, just up the hill from the castle. The other one worth visiting is Beaumaris on Anglesey. It was never properly finished because hostilities ceased, so it was never tested, but they say it would've been impregnable. The Frenchman who designed it sure knew what he was doing.
If you get chance PM me ARTIC when you visit - I'll put the kettle on.
