For any budding pilots or anyone who occasionally looks to the sky in wonder, the Airworld Aviation Museum in Dinas Dinlle, Caernarfon, makes for a good day out.
The Airworld Aviation Museum is an interactive one, and plays host to an impressive collection of aircrafts from across the years. Unlike most other aviation museums, Airworld offers real cockpit experiences, meaning you can see for yourself how being in the pilot’s seat might have felt.
In terms of the aircraft on display here, some of the prize pieces include the DH Vampire, the Hawker Sea Hawk, the Bae Harrier and the Westland Whirlwind helicopter, direct from the RAF Mountain Rescue Services.
Other than the various real vehicles, there is also a great collection of model aircrafts which you can look at, as well as a mini cinema in which you can watch short films about the aircraft featured here.
Once you’re finished in the museum, take a load off and grab a bite to eat in the café.
The Airworld museum is located at the Caernarfon airport.

Probably the most famous of all the many castles in Wales, and for good reason – its sheer scale dwarfs the others, and the town walls are still remarkably intact. Tourists can walk along a small part of the walls, which offers some fantastic views over the town. Also houses the museum of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers.
Base yourself in the Caernarfon area to explore this historic castle town and the Snowdonia area. The Welsh Highland Railway starts from Caernarfon to Porthmadog, a great way to see the countryside. The Llyn Peninsula is also easily accessible. Find a your holiday cottage here.
Choose a cottage in the Snowdonia area for qucik access into the Snowdonia National Park. From remote cottages overlooked by soaring mountains to cottages in small villages you can find the right level of "countryside" for you.
