2018 - Risboro - 5 Days (AUD0058/59/60)
Llandudno is a coastal town in North Wales. It’s known for North Shore Beach and 19th-century Llandudno Pier, with it's shops and games arcades. Northwest of town, the cliffs of Great Orme headland jut into the sea. Llandudno is without doubt the ‘Queen of Welsh Resorts’. The long, crescent-shaped promenade and sweeping sands, make it a perfect holiday destination.
We stay at the lovely Risboro Hotel which whilst ideally located in the heart of Llandudno, is also well known for its excellent evening entertainment with which to relax after a full day of touring...and on this tour that is what you can enjoy! We also have a fabulous programme arranged for you taking in some of the best attractions that North Wales has to offer!
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
Risboro Hotel, Llandudno
The Risboro Hotel sits between the two beaches that lie at the foot of the Orme, just a stone’s throw from the tram station for the summit of the Orme.

Porthmadog is a mecca for railway buffs. There are 'little trains' all over Wales, a legacy of Victorian industry, but Porthmadog is triply blessed. It forms the southern terminus for two of Wales’ finest narrow-gauge train journeys and has a third steam-train line connected to a rail heritage centre.
The small town with the absurdly long, consonant-mangling name is an unlikely hot spot for visitors, yet coaches stop by frequently, waiting while their passengers jostle for a photo opportunity on the train station platform (go on, you know you want to). The name (which means St Mary's Church in the Hollow of the White Hazel near a Rapid Whirlpool and the Church of St Tysilio near the Red Cave) was dreamt up in the 19th century to get the tourists in. And it worked. The previous name Llanfairpwllgwyngyll would have been hard enough; most locals call it Llanfairpwll but you'll often see it written as Llanfair PG.
Wedged between the gleaming Menai Strait and the deep-purple hills, Caernarfon's main claim to fame is its fantastical castle. Given the town's crucial historical importance, its proximity to Snowdonia and reputation as a centre of Welsh culture (its percentage of native speakers is as high as anywhere), it's surprisingly down-at-heel in parts, with quite a few boarded-up buildings. Still, there's a lot of charm in its untouristy air and a tangible sense of history in the streets around the castle, especially Palace St, Castle Sq and Hole in the Wall St. Within the cobbled lanes of the old walled town are some fine Georgian buildings, and the waterfront is marching inevitably towards gentrification.
