We are traveling to England to cruise on a narrowboat for a week in early July. That portion of the trip is fixed. Now we've started to look at other destinations (if we're going to fly to England we're going to spend more than a week) and Wales has moved to the top. Quick but important info; we will not have a car
As we plan we've come up with some questions about castles and related things.
One of the Ring of Iron castles is almost certainly on our list to get a view of later, more complete castles. If everything was equal I'd like Harlech but it might be a little too far off the rest of the trip to really work. Caernarfon seems great but I've also heard that it is more crowded. Is that true or is the difference too small to matter?
I'd like to take a walk to more of a country castle. Ruins are fine although something that could be poked around in a little seems more interesting than just a foundation. Some of the pictures on various websites are terrific but figuring out location, access by rail or bus, and then reasonableness of walking access is being difficult. Is there any website that has collected day hikes in Wales?
