The Llyn Peninsula is a lively, interesting and beautiful part of Wales, with a wonderful coastline stretching from Porthmadog to Caernarfon. In this new book on the area, part local and social history, part guide to the towns, villages and life of the peninsula, Maurice Hope explores the treasures of the region and uncovers some fascinating stories of the past. Discover more about the City of Giants, Lawrence of Arabia (who was born in Tremadog), the thriving arts scene and the beach festivals and Lloyd George's village in a book that is sure to appeal to both residents and visitors to the Llyn. The engaging text is lavishly illustrated with both historic and contemporary illustrations.
