One of Harlech’s greatest features is Harlech Castle which stands proudly looking over the beach. It is built atop a craggy hill which only adds to the grandeur of this impressive building. This UNESCO world heritage site has been the site of great battles in centuries past, yet it still stands tall as a Grade 1 listed building. The alternative Welsh national anthem, Men of Harlech, comes from the tales of wars and sieges here. This is a Welsh Castle worth the visit for both its imposing looks and the history just waiting to be explored.
Another breath-taking sight in Harlech is The Royal St David’s Golf club. The panoramic coastal views here are unparalleled. Enjoy looking out across Cardigan Bay as you play your round of golf and be sure to remember your camera because the seascape here is more than photo worthy.
