Gwynedd is a local authority area in North Wales.
Cities, towns and villages
Most of the county falls within two regions.
It would probably be best to learn some basic Welsh as you might encounter people who only speak Welsh - this is however unlikely, as the population of Welsh monoglots is in the low hundreds, most of which are elderly. Plenty of inhabitants speak only English - in towns such as Tywyn more residents consider themselves 'only English' as opposed to 'only Welsh' according to the 2011 census. Those unfamiliar with Welsh may struggle to read placenames, especially for those smaller areas without English names.
