Castles and Cruises

Enter the mysterious and legendary land of Wales with a short drive across the island of Anglesey (within a stonesthrow of the marital home of Prince William and Kate) before navigating to the mighty town of Caernarfon. Its sheer scale and commanding presence sets it somehow apart, and to this day, still trumpets, in no uncertain terms, the intention of its commissioner, Edward I.
