Camping in Pwllheli

Pwllheli is a community and the main market town of the Ll'n Peninsula in Gwynedd, north-western Wales.

The town was given its charter as a borough by Edward, the Black Prince in 1355,[citation needed] and a market is still held each Wednesday in the centre of the town on the 'Maes' (=field in English).

During the 1890s, the town was developed by Solomon Andrews, a Cardiff businessman. This work included the Promenade, roads and houses at West End. A tramway was built linking the town to Llanbedrog. The trams ran until 1927 when a section of track was seriously damaged by a storm.

The town contains numerous retail shops, including Euronics and many smaller shops. It also had a Woolworths until that chain's demise. Supermarkets include Somerfield, SPAR, the Co-op supermarket, Iceland and Asda. A new Lidl store opened very recently.
