Plas Y Brenin, UK

October 24 - October 26

Location:

Plas y Brenin was built in 1798 by Lord Penrhyn as the Capel Curig Inn. It provided accommodation for Queen Victoria, Kings Edward VII and VIII, and George V and was renamed the Royal Hotel in 1870. Aside from a few years of use as a mountain warfare training center during World War II, the building remained in continual use as a hotel for over 150 years. The Central Council for Physical Recreation acquired the site in 1955 for use as a national recreation center, with funding from King George VI’s memorial fund. The center was renamed Plas y Brenin, meaning ‘The King’s Place’, in his honor. Ever since, Plas y Brenin has been at the forefront of outdoor instruction.
