Snowdon Mountain Railway, Llanberis & Betws-y-Coed
Reaching the summit of Snowdon is always an exciting achievement, and what better way to do it than by the Snowdon Mountain Railway! You can sit back and enjoy the incredible views of Snowdonia National Park as you make your way to the top, passing by waterfalls, lakes and lush valleys. It is easy to see why Snowdon Mountain Railway is one of the most scenic railway tours you can experience!
The starting point for your trip up Snowdon is Llanberis, and you’ll have time to explore this charming mountain village too. Nearby are the twin lakes of Llyn Padarn and Llyn Peris, known for their rugged beauty and scarring from slate mines. You can visit the National Slate Museum to learn of the areas industrial heritage or wander the streets to check out the craft shops. While in Snowdonia, we will visit the bustling mountain village of Betws-y-Coed. This all-season resort, nestled at the heart of the Conwy Valley where 4 rivers converge, is a hive of activity.

Conwy, Beaumaris & The Puffin Boat
Conwy is a true one-off. Well-preserved ancient walls, the most intact in Europe, enclose a town of narrow cobbled streets, nooks and crannies chock-full of historic buildings. And that’s just the half of it. The walls radiate out from a gritty, dark-stoned castle that, even after all these years, still preserves an authentic medieval atmosphere – and still has the power to dominate and intimidate. Conwy Castle, a World Heritage Site, was a key part of the ‘iron ring’ of fortresses built around Snowdonia in the 13th century by Edward I to contain the Welsh.
Beaumaris is a captivating seaside town on the island of Anglesey, featuring a mix of medieval, Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian architecture. Its name is based on the Norman ‘beau marais’, meaning ‘fair marsh’, a description of the site chosen by Edward 1 for the last of his ‘Iron ring’ of castles, constructed in his bid to control the Welsh. The charming streets with their picturesque cottages, many painted in soft pastel colours. Beaumaris Castle is a United Nations World Heritage site and also not to be missed.
Puffin Island Boat - Puffin Island located north of the Menai Straits, and is now a bird sanctuary to many species of seabird. On a boat trip to the island, you’ll be able you’ll be able to see guillemots, razorbills, kittiwakes, and of course, puffins. Another animal often seen at the island are grey seals, and you may be lucky to spot porpoise or dolphins!
