Criccieth Castle and the Lloyd George Museum

Low Level Walks

A superb circular walk can be done connecting Criccieth Castle with the Lloyd George Museum in Llanystumdwy. The charming seaside town of Criccieth is famed for its castle, and rightly so as it is a fine example of a medieval fortress. The castle makes a perfect starting and finishing point for a walk; it’s probably best to explore it before you set off as it does close at 6 o’clock each day. Once you’ve soaked up all the legends and stories from the castle’s chequered history it’s time to head along the coast. The coastal footpath provides a perfect route westwards past the National Trust owned Ynysgain, before turning in land and heading to the village of Llanystumdwy. Here you will find historical interest of a more recent nature: the renowned Welsh politician, Earl Lloyd George grew up in Llanystumdwy. The David Lloyd George Museum commemorates and celebrates the remarkable life and achievements of this great man.

For the return walk back to Criccieth you have to walk along a minor road – fortunately this is very quiet and has some splendid views out over Cardigan Bay.


There are some parking spaces close to Criccieth Castle.


Mostly good footpaths and minor roads, but one section of pebbley beach.
