Criccieth Castle

Criccieth Castle Review

In the Victorian seaside resort of Criccieth, a few miles west of Porthmadog on the A497, a medieval castle with sweeping views crowns the headland. David Lloyd George, who was prime minister of Britain for most of the First World War, grew up in Wales and lived here; a small museum in his childhood home honors him.
