Just because it’s raining outside, it doesn’t mean you can’t squeeze some exercise in, and Beacon Climbing Centre combines that with fun, too. Climbing is a natural instinct for humans and something we’ve been doing for thousands of years, and what better place to put your skills to the test than at North Wales’ number one climbing centre?
Open seven days a week throughout the year, Beacon Climbing Centre features a plethora of activities for kids and adults. Scale the 17m high roped climbing walls and manoeuvre through low-level bouldering areas including the 12m routing roof while the kids take on a series of fun climbing challenges in the dedicated children’s climbing area – CrazyClimb. There are twelve different challenges to complete including a race against the clock on the speed climb, a wall covered in large purple blobs and a drain pipe to scale.
You don’t need to be an experienced climber to have a go either – The Beacon Climbing Centre caters for people of all ages and abilities, with equipment and expert supervision included.
Now that’s better than an afternoon at the gym!
After you’ve worked up an appetite climbing, you can relax and unwind with a hot drink and a bite to eat at The Beacon Café.
Beacon Climbing Centre is found in Caernarfon, just off of Lon Cae Ffynnon.

The Isle of Anglesey is a beautiful part of Wales, set apart from the Welsh mainland by the Menai Strait, and it is well worth spending at least a few days on in an effort to see and experience as much of its natural beauty as possible.
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.
Caernarfon is known for one thing more than anything else: its mighty castle. This immense fortress dates back to the end of the 13th century – King Edward I of England had begun his Welsh conquest, taking the town of Caernarfon in 1283. The pre-existing motte and bailey structure was demolished under his instruction, and in its place began work on the impressive stone structure we know today.
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.
