Caernarfon is located in an advantageous spot at the mouth of the River Seiont on Wales`s northwestern coast, just across the Menai Strait from the Isle of Anglesey, and also just to the north of Snowdonia National Park, one of Wales`s leading tourist sites. While the town is a great place to stay before exploring both of those areas, it also has its own noteworthy sights, such as Caernarfon Castle, one of the largest castles built by the English after their conquest of Wales in the 13th century. The castle and the town walls, built on the orders of King Edward I, are altogether a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 14th-century Church of St. Peblig was built on a site of worship that has been utilized since the time of the Romans. Caernarfon is also known as the hometown of David Lloyd George, one of the most highly-regarded Prime Ministers of the United Kingdom, who represented the area at Westminster for nearly 50 years.
