WITH temperatures set to rise across North Wales this weekend, we have put together some ideas of how to make the most of the weather in your region.

Enjoy the peace and quiet of open gardens in Gwynedd

The National Garden Scheme comes to Gwynedd this week, with Mynydd Heulog in Pwllheli and Glan Llyn in Caernarfon opening up to the public.

The gardens showcase woodland, ponds, streams, exotic flowerbeds and sprawling views of the coastline, perfect for a weekend getaway.

Have a bite to eat at Caernarfon Food Festival

The town streets play host to Saturday’s cuisine frenzy, with stallholders dotted about the streets of the centre, and shows including poetry and songs from Wales and as far as Serbia and Croatia.

Food merchants from across North Wales will promote their treats in a market you won’t want to miss.

Rock the Castle this year at Harlech

The historic walls of Harlech Castle welcome some of the best tribute acts in the business, with Saturday night’s event including bands The Phonics and Tom Jones.

Music lovers can enjoy the sunset within the castle walls while listening to some of their favourite songs, with food and drinks available at several stalls.

A wholesome walk on Anglesey’s best beaches

Wind down for the weekend with a relaxing stroll along some of Anglesey’s most beautiful beaches and coastal paths.

Beaches at Benllech, Rhosneigr, Church Bay, Penmon and Amlwch are just some of what Anglesey has to offer.

But be warned – some beaches no longer allow dogs.
