Isle Of Anglesey
Anglesey is a place where you can get away from it all and just lose yourself! Our tour is based in the attractive and classy seaside town of Beaumaris with its handsome mix of Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian influences, an interesting place with a good choice of shops, inns and bags of history. Its moated Castle is possibly the finest of all North Wales’s 13th century fortresses and is a World Heritage Site and the fine views across the Menai Strait to Snowdonia from the seafront and pier are just delightful on the eye.

- We enjoy a full day visit to Portmeirion, created by the architect Clough Williams-Ellis from 1925 to 1976. Portmeirion stands on a rugged clifftop on its own private peninsula overlooking Cardigan Bay. It is surrounded by 145 acres of sub-tropical woodlands and miles of sandy beaches. Following this visit we make our way back to Porthmadog, where we enjoy some free time before returning to Beaumaris.
- We enjoy a visit to Gwydir Castle, an ancient Welsh house situated in the beautiful Conwy Valley and regarded as one of the finest Tudor house in Wales. The castle was formerly the ancestral home of the powerful Wynn family. By 1994, the house & garden had fallen into dereliction and its restoration has taken over 20 years to complete. Following this visit we continue to Trefriw Woollen Mills, a family business since 1859 and manufacturers of traditional Welsh woven products.
- We enjoy a full day at leisure in the beautiful town of Beaumaris - you can explore a medieval castle, discover pastel painted houses and see the work of local artists. Take a walk across a Victorian pier, do some serious shopping or just kick back in an ancient pub and try some award-winning food.
