What to eat on your North Wales holiday: lamb, leeks, and laverbread
With its proximity to the sea and its heather-filled pastures dotted with sheep, North Wales is a place of proud culinary traditions. Don’t miss the chance to try a bowl of lamb cawl, a rich stew made from local lamb and leeks. Laverbread, Wales’ answer to caviar, is a delicious seaweed dish that could be served with a bowl of locally-caught mussels or a dressed crab.
Welsh rarebit, meanwhile, is a decadent local version of cheese on toast and bara brith is a traditional fruitloaf. Wash it all down with a glass of locally produced whisky and satisfy sweet cravings with a Welsh cake, Wales’ currant-stuffed answer to a pancake.
The weather in North Wales
As North Wales is a mountainous region and by the coast, the area has a maritime climate typified by wet, windy and mild weather. Snow is common in winter, which makes for stunning photo opportunities - especially around the highest mountain in England and Wales, Mount Snowdon.
In the summer months, daytime temperatures range from around 17 to 20 degrees Celsius. Many consider spring to be the best time to stay in a North Wales holiday cottage, with temperatures between 9 and 15 degrees Celsius. The milder weather is actually perfect for outdoor activities such as hiking.
What to see in North Wales
Pontcysyllte Aqueduct is an impressive engineering achievement and UNESCO World Heritage site that should not be missed. The Aber Falls, located just to the south of Abergwyngregyn, is a geological delight and a perfect spot to walk around and have a picnic with the family. Another great natural site is the Aberglaslyn Pass, a narrow gorge which can be traversed by boat or on foot.
Other attractions in North Wales include the multitude of medieval castles, several of which are UNESCO World Heritage sites. These grand structures are rich in history and are perfect for a fun and educational visit with children. Described by historian Andrew Taylor as Britain's 'most perfect example of symmetrical concrete planning', Beaumaris Castle is particularly worth a visit.

You can visit North Wales with kids all year round, and there's plenty of activities to keep you active and entertained. The main attraction for outdoor activities is Snowdonia National Park, which offers countless walking, hiking, and cycling tracks to suit every age and ability, including several waterfall walks and trails up Mount Snowdon for stunning views.
If small legs aren't up for the walk, another way to see Snowdon with kids is the historic Snowdon Mountain Railway. Alternatively, the quaint 19th-century Talyllyn Railway steam train line in the south of North Wales takes you through beautiful wild landscapes and past the impressive waterfalls at Dolgoch. The impressive Pontcysyllte Aqueduct in the northeast offers boat rides on the River Dee towards the Horseshoe Falls.
There's no shortage of historic sites to visit in North Wales, with the massive imposing 13th-century waterfront fortresses of Conwy Castle and Caernarfon Castle bound to impress kids and adults alike. For summer beach holidays, holiday lettings in and around the promenade-lined resort town of Llandudno and its North Shore Beach are a great pick.
If you're looking for fun family outings, you'll find no shortage of options on the island of Anglesey, including ancient Neolithic Stone Age sites, the Menai Suspension Bridge connecting Anglesey to the mainland, and beautiful Beaumaris Castle. If you're coming in September, don't miss the annual Beaumaris Food Festival at the castle, which attracts famous chefs and enthusiasts from across the UK and overseas.
