The county of Gwynedd is situated in the northwest part of Wales, bathed by the Irish Sea in the west. It shares land borders with Conwy, Denbighshire and Powys. The county island of Anglesey is to the northwest of Gwynedd across the Menai Strait and Ceredigion is south across the River Dyfi.
You will see on the live cameras the scenic landscapes and lovely historic towns of Gwynedd. This county covers the stunning Llŷn Peninsula and most of the Snowdonia National Park. This huge natural park is one of the best in Great Britain for hiking and climbing, and it is possible to reach the summit of Snowdon by the Snowdon Mountain Railway starting at Llanberis. In addition to the spectacular mountain scenery, the park contains numerous lakes, valleys, sand beaches, and dunes. It is home to wildlife, including the Glaslyn Valley's rare ospreys. Caernarfon, a city with a long history and the highest percentage of Welsh-speaking citizens in Wales, serves as the administrative centre for Gwynedd.
Caernarfon has a beautiful and prosperous harbour and marina on the Menai Strait.
The massive Caernarfon Castle, a World Heritage Site, sits on the riverfront, with 13 towers and two gates. Bangor, the county's largest city, has a magnificent cathedral, pleasant waterfronts, and numerous leisure facilities. Penrhyn Castle and Garden, a country house shaped like a Norman castle with extensive gardens to explore, is also worth a visit.
