Latest reviews | Events in Harlech | 10 Places to Stay

At the edge of the Snowdonian foothills in Gwynedd in North Wales and on the edge of Cardiagn Bay lies the historic town of Harlech looking out westwards toward the Lleyn Peninsula. Famed for its medieval fortress built in the 13th century by Edward I as part of his ďiron ringĒ of fortresses built to subdue the Welsh. Harlech Castle is situated high upon a rocky outcrop, its seaward side defended by sheer cliffs, while a deep moat protected the other sides and today it still provides and excellent viewpoint that dominates the town. The beach and shore though is another good reason to visit Harlech, stretching for miles there are truly golden sands with dunes that occasionally reach around thirty feet in height and has been designated a National Nature Reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest. The town centre offers a range of traditional shops with a number of places to eat, in short Harlech offers good beaches, a spectacular castle and great scenery. One final thing, the song Men of Harlech, was it really sung at the Battle of Rorkeís Drift? The curator of the unitís regimental museum thinks it unlikely as the song, first published in 1860, was only officially adopted by the regiment in 1881. However the Battle of Rorkeís Drift in the film Zulu was set in 1879.
