The Victoria Dock was first built in the 1860s and intended for the import mostly of Timber from Scandinavia. At around the time of completion the Railway had arrived and following a period of decline in commercial shipping the Victoria Dock ceased to exist commercially.
In 1997 the Victoria Dock was purchased by Gwynedd Council who developed it into the Victoria Dock Marina that is operational today.
The Victoria Dock is situated in the historical Castle town of Caernarfon at the Southern end of the Menai Strait.
If you are travelling up or down the West Coast of Wales then you cannot miss out the Royal Town of Caernarfon and the Menai Strait as a destination to visit either by Sea or Land.
The Menai Strait is the stretch of water that separates the Island of Anglesey from the coast of Gwynedd and is as dramatic and picturesque as any other navigable waterway and anyone who has travelled through the Menai Strait will assure you that it is an easy passage to make if you have your correct timings. Passage information is willingly given by the duty Dock Master should you require.

The Victoria Dock can accommodate up to 45 visiting vessels that are guaranteed a very warm welcome.
There is a 2 metre Flap gate that is operated during the Summer period (1st April – 30th September) between the hours of 07:00 – 23:00 and during the Winter period (1st October – 31st March) between Sunrise and Sunset only.
During opening times the Victoria Dock listens on VHF Ch 80 and landline 01286672346.
A new unisex Ablutions building was opened 2014 which includes modern Toilet and shower facilities together with a self-contained disabled-friendly unit.

We have free Wi-Fi available.

Recycle facilities onsite. Oil, Batteries, Filters, Glass, Tin, Plastic Bottles and Newsprint.

The Victoria Dock is ideally situated within reasonable distance for any of the main visitor attractions of North Wales such as Snowdonia National Park, both Snowdon and Highland Railways, Caernarfon Castle, Electric Mountain Hydro Electric Scheme along with many other places of interest.
Local supermarket, shops, pubs and various quality restaurants are only a short distance from the Dock.
