Coastal Forts and The Isle of Anglesey
First to Caernarfon with its fantastical castle and cobbled lanes and then cross the glistening Menai Straits to 'Ynys Mon' (the Isle of Anglesey). Make a stop at Llanfair Pwllgwyngyll and continue to the elegant seaside town of Beaumaris, fronted by its superb 13th century moated castle.

Bodnant Gardens & Conwy (May, June, July & August tours)
Bodnant Gardens is one of the UK's most beautiful gardens, spanning 80 acres above the River Conwy.  You can enjoy a wide range of interesting and beautiful plants from all over the world that are suited to the Welsh climate and soil. The May and possibly June departure may have the added highlight of seeing the famous Laburnum Arch, a 55 metre long tunnel with an overwhelming mass of yellow hanging flowers (depends on the weather and when it started to bloom). Stop in the historic town of Conwy with its epic World Heritage-listed castle which dominates the town.  The medieval town walls are amongst the most complete in Britain and Thomas Telford's elegant 1826 suspension bridge was one of the first of its kind in the world. Entrance included.
