Penrhyn Llŷn (Llŷn Peninsula)
Penrhyn Llŷn (Llŷn Peninsula) is unmistakeable in so many ways. You can’t miss it on the map – it’s the crooked finger of land that points forcefully out of north west Wales into the Irish Sea. It has a distinct identity as a bastion of Celtic history and heritage and stronghold of Welsh culture and language. Then there’s the look of the place – it’s stunning.
Llŷn is a protected ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ on the strength of its exceptional coastline of coves, headlands, beaches and bays rich in wildlife. They’re all interlinked by the Llŷn Coastal Path (now part of the all-Wales Coast Path).
Language and Culture
The Llŷn remains a true stronghold of the Welsh language and culture where over 70% of the population of approximate 6,000 speak the language as their first language. The language is taught as the primary language in all primary and secondary schools. This abudnace of Welsh language and culture is a big part of what makes the area so special, and plays a huge role in the area’s tourism industry.
Nearby Nant Gwrtheyrn or “the Nant” as it is often called, is home to the National Welsh Language and Heritage Centre. It’s a magical place located in a former quarrying village on the northern coast of the Llŷn Peninsula in north Wales.
