Itinerary

Description

We explore the spectacular scenery and historic railways and tramways of north Wales. A rugged coastline, magnificent castles and the endless panoramas of the Snowdonia National Park will make for a memorable break away from it all. We also enjoy time at leisure in the unique coastal villages of Portmeirion and Llandudno, the ‘Queen of the Welsh Resorts’.

Coach Itinerary

Caernarfon & Welsh Highland Railway (full day)
We travel to Caernarfon, a charming town with a thriving harbour located on the eastern shore of the Menai Straits. The main landmark of the town is the imposing castle ordered by Edward I in the 13th century.

In the afternoon we board the Welsh Highland Railway and enjoy a picturesque journey to the quaint village of Beddgelert, admiring the awe-inspiring scenery of the Snowdonia National Park on the way.

Llandudno & Great Orme Tramway (full day)
We spend some time at leisure in the seaside resort of Llandudno, famed for its golden beach flanked by the Great and Little Ormes and its wonderful air of traditional Victorian charm.

Later we board the Great Orme Tramway, Britain’s only cable-hauled public road tramway, for a scenic journey up to the summit of the Great Orme, passing through the Great Orme Country Park and Nature Reserve. Enjoy the breathtaking views of sea and mountains as we travel in the original, lovingly-restored Victorian tramcars.


Portmeirion & Ffestiniog Railway (full day)
Architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis designed and built the Italianate village of Portmeirion after being inspired by visits to the Mediterranean. Its unique atmosphere has seen it featured on camera many times, most famously in the 1960s TV series, The Prisoner.

After a morning here, we travel to the harbour town of Porthmadog to catch the Ffestiniog Railway to the slate-quarrying town of Blaenau. The train climbs over 700 feet from sea level into the mountains through tranquil pastures, magnificent forests, lakes and waterfalls.
