We return to the pretty little village of Llanberis, a bustling holiday centre with plenty of little shops and eateries. It is home to the Electric Mountain, the Welsh Slate Museum, Snowdon Mountain Railway and Llanberis Lake Railway. During this great value break we include visits to Portmadog, Caernarfon, Beaumaris and more!
Monday From your front door to the waiting coach then on through the heart of England to Shrewsbury for a lunch stop. This afternoon we continue to the beautiful Vale of Llangollen and follow the River Dee to enter Snowdonia at Capel Curig arriving at our hotel late afternoon.
Tuesday This morning we enjoy a brief visit to Betwys-Y-Coed before we head to Blaenau Ffestiniog, known as “the town that roofed the world”. Slate was how Blawnau made its name, and the town is immensely proud of its industrial heritage. We enjoy a scenic drive through the mountains before descending to Portmadog, where we have time to explore before returning later to Llanberis.
Wednesday Today, we take a drive along to the seaside resort of Llandudno, where we will spend time today. Developed as an upmarket holiday town for Victorian visitors, Llandudno still retains much of its 19th century grandeur, with graceful wedding cake architecture lining its sweeping waterfront promenade. Why not take a stroll along the wide promenade and enjoy the sea air or enjoy some retail therapy in the main shopping street which runs parallel with the sea front.
Thursday Historic Caernarfon, which is guarded by Wales’ most famous castle, is just a short drive from the hotel. We have the chance to explore this bustling market town before crossing the Menai Straits for a visit to Beaumaris and a short stop at Llanfair PG and James Pringle store before retracing our steps and returning to our hotel for dinner.
Friday After breakfast we bid farewell to Wales and make our way home, using the motorways we arrive in our home areas late afternoon after a fantastic holiday.
