Tuesday: Today we enjoy some stunning scenery as we make our way into the heart of the Snowdonia National Park. The day starts with a visit to Betws-y-Coed. This pretty little village was once a major coaching centre on the Irish Mail route from London to Holyhead and today is the gateway to the Snowdonia National Park. This afternoon we climb on board the Snowdon Mountain Railway and savour breathtaking views from the summit of Wales’ highest mountain.
Wednesday: This morning we visit the medieval walled town of Conwy. A World Heritage Site with an imposing 13th century castle and walls. From here we venture over the Menai Straits onto the Isle of Anglesey and onto the seaside town of Beaumaris. Noted for its castle, Georgian architecture and views back across to Snowdonia. Before leaving Anglesey and returning to our hotel, we pay a brief visit to Llanfair PG, the town with the longest name
Friday: We spend the day at leisure here in Llandudno, enjoying the beautiful Victorian architecture and Edwardian elegance. Stroll down the longest pier in Wales, enjoy a walk along the promenade, and perhaps take the UK’s only cable hauled tramway to the top of the Great Orme.
Saturday: Sadly we must leave North Wales and the Snowdonia National Park and head for home. With a lunch stop at the Bridgemere Garden Centre and a comfort stop in the afternoon to get those essential supplies we hope to be back home late afternoon.
Please read the itinerary carefully before deciding if this tour will be suitable for you: 1) This tour involves heritage railways, you must be able to negotiate getting on and off the trains.
Please note: the weather conditions on Snowdon can be very unpredictable and change very quickly. Trains cannot proceed all the way to the Summit if weather conditions become severe.
