Castles, standing stones, follies, Snowdonia architecture — we haven’t run out of things to see here yet, and neither will you.

Jan Morris wrote a book about Wales called The First Land, so named because you are standing on the oldest rock in the world.

Harlech has been designated a World Heritage Site by the United Nations.

Architecturally, you’ll find two books we rely on in the Globe Wernicke bookcase next to the TV, on the top shelves.

They are The Buildings of Gwynedd by Richard Haslam, Julian Orbach and Adam Voelcker in Pevsner’s ‘Buildings of Wales’ series, and Discovering The Historic Houses of Snowdonia, by Richard Suggett and Margaret Dunn.
