The Chairman and members of Criccieth Town Council extend an enthusiastic welcome to visitors to our Web Site. Criccieth is a beautiful small town situated on the shores of Cardigan Bay and sheltered by the Snowdonia Mountains. We as residents are proud of our history and heritage, which can be traced back to 1239, when a stone castle was originally built on a mound, which protrudes out to sea. The remains of the castle can still be seen and a walk to the top rewards you with fantastic views of the Town, the beaches and the mountains. The town received its charter as a borough in 1284. The centre of town is a green lawn 'Y MAES', which is part of the original Medieval Common Land and it is here that the four roads meet as a Crossing, one north to Caernarfon, one west to Pwllheli, one east to Porthmadog and one south to the sea. We are fortunate in that we have a very temperate climate and never experience extreme temperatures. Criccieth is particularly attractive in Spring and Autumn. Criccieth has a long fascinating history but has now developed into an interesting modern town, with an abundance of accommodation for tourists.
Come to Criccieth. You will be Very Welcome.
