The Black Boy Inn is a hotel located in Caernarfon, which is in the Royal Borough of North Wales in England. The inn was built in 1522 and is one of the few remaining public houses owned by an independent family business in the U.K.
There are theories behind the naming of the hotel, including one that says it was named after a black boy that came over by ship in the 16th century. After the year 1828, the hotel, which is located on Northgate Street, was renamed the Kings Arms then 'Fleur de Lys' before going back to the title Black Boy Inn once again.
