Caernarfon Castle is located at the southern end of the Menai Strait between north Wales and Anglesey. During Edward I's invasions of Wales, this was strategically an excellent place to build a castle; Anglesey was referred to as the garden of Wales, providing agriculturally rich land close to the poorer land on north Wales.
