The Town of Caernarfon

Caernarfon is a Royal town, community and port in Gwynedd, Wales, with a population of 9,611 with over 80% of the population speaking the ancient language of Cymraeg (Welsh). You will hear it spoken on the the streets, in the cafes and bars and in the shops and restaurants It lies along the A487 road, on the east banks of the Menai Straits, opposite the Isle of Anglesey. The city of Bangor is 8.6 miles (13.8 km) to the northeast, while Snowdonia fringes Caernarfon to the east and southeast. Caernarvon and Carnarvon are archaic anglicised spellings of Caernarfon, but used rarely.

Few towns in Britain can claim to be inhabited without a break since pre-Roman times, but the Royal Town of Caernarfon is just such a town.
