On arrival at your hotel you will be able to check-in, relax and settle in (perhaps take your first stroll along the Prom) and enjoy your first dinner and time to meet your fellow travellers as you look forward to a fabulous festive holiday.

Days 2 to 4

Enjoy a hearty Welsh breakfast each morning and be prepared for your beautiful adventure each day. There will be plenty of time to relax at your comfortable hotel, and enjoy all of the delights that the pretty seaside town of Llandudno has to offer - whether you enjoy a stroll along the prom or a browse amongst the nearby local shops your central location makes it all easy. Llandudno Pier, the longest pier in Wales, is one of the most popular attractions in town, with an array of shops, cafes, bars and attractions dotting the 700-metre boardwalk. You can take in superb sunset views over the sea from here. The connecting promenade is lined with pastel-hued Victorian mansions and runs along North Shore Beach, where you’ll find stretches of sand as well as pebble. You can spend all of your time in Llandudno or join us on your INCLUDED excursions.

Crowned by the majestic Caernarfon Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site, the historic walled town of Caernarfon seamlessly blends historic grandeur with the warmth of Welsh tradition. Wander through the charming streets adorned with traditional Welsh shops, pubs, cafes and vibrant markets, each revealing a piece of the town's rich heritage.

Day 5

After a final tasty Welsh breakfast it's sadly time to say farewell to lovely Llandudno and North Wales.  Board your coach and relax as you travel home with suitable stops on the way.

Lllandudno

In a nutshell, everyone loves Llandudno. Who could possibly argue with that while strolling along the elegant promenade past pastel-coloured hotels and impeccably authentic seafront architecture just like Victorians did? All that’s needed to complete the picture is a frilly parasol (for the ladies) and straw boater (for the gentlemen). Llandudno’s appearance is down to the fact that, unlike most other resorts, it has remained largely unchanged for over a century. There’s a pier (the longest in Wales) and Punch and Judy, donkey rides on the beach and canopied shopping streets just behind the prom. Put simply, Llandudno is a classic of its kind. Its sense of harmony extends to its geography. The main North Shore beach is perfectly framed by two headlands, the Great Orme and Little Orme. Over the former – linked by a spectacular Marine Drive carved into the sea-cliff, you’ll find a second beach, the West Shore. It was here that Alice Pleasance Liddell, who inspired ‘Alice in Wonderland’, holidayed as a child. There’s an Alice Trail map and souvenir guide that’s easy to navigate – simply follow the White Rabbit’s bronze footprints around the town. The resort’s genteel appearance is deceptive. It is bursting at the seams with things to see and do. Take the San Franciscan-style tramway or alpine cable car to the summit of the Great Orme Country Park, soak up the dizzy views then disappear underground at the prehistoric copper mines. Visit Llandudno Museum or call into the nearby Home Front Experience, an immersive little museum that takes you back to World War Two. Those with sweet tooth are in for a treat at Llandudno’s very own Chocolate Experience which is divided into nine different areas each one uncovering a part of the history of chocolate. One of the UK’s best contemporary art galleries can be found behind a gold-spired Edwardian façade. MOSTYN hosts a shifting programme of exhibitions that showcase the best in contemporary art and craft from Wales and beyond. There’s also a cool café and stylish shop.

Please note some attractions and activities are seasonal so may not be available depending on the date of your visit

Caernarfon

INCLUDED Visitor DestinationThe beautiful harbourside Royal Town of Caernarfon is home to Wales’s most famous castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, mighty Caernarfon Castle commands the lion’s share of attention, but the town’s narrow streets and stylishly redeveloped waterfront also have a charm of their own and are well worth exploring. The castle, built in the 13th century by Edward I as a royal palace and military fortress, was at the core of a medieval walled town, and also the famous site of the 1969 Investiture of the present day Prince of Wales. One of the town's many attractions includes the Welsh Highland Railway which runs for 25 miles to Porthmadog through beautiful scenery. History comes alive at Caernarfon in so many ways – along the lofty wall walks, beneath the twin-towered gatehouse and within imaginative exhibitions located within the towers. The castle also houses the Regimental Museum of the Royal Welch Fusiliers, Wales’s oldest regiment.

Anglesey & Beaumaris

INCLUDED Visitor Destination

The Menai Strait, or Afon Menai as it is known locally, is the sea channel that separates the beautiful isle of Anglesey from mainland Gwynedd. It is connected to the mainland by Thomas Telford’s Menai Suspension Bridge and Robert Stephenson’s Britannia Bridge. The Strait also has many small, offshore islands, lovely views of the Snowdonia and Carneddau mountain ranges, Conwy Bay, and the towns of Bangor through to Caernarfon.

Anglesey is renowned for its beauty, and the town of Beaumaris really is its jewel in the crown, with a stunning seaside setting and dramatic 13th century castle overlooking the beautiful Menai Strait. The seafront offers a traditional stroll and ice cream or fish & chips, whilst the lovely Castle Street has a wonderful selection of independent shops and boutiques offering excellent local produce, gifts, and cute cafes.

Chester Christmas Market

INCLUDED Visitor Destination

This may be the best-preserved walled city in England, with its galleried streets, Roman Wall, Tudor houses, and unique medieval shopping experience at the famous ‘Rows’, where the shops are quite literally ‘on top of each other’. This is a fascinating city where you can truly combine a love of history with some truly inspiring shopping opportunities! Don’t miss a visit to the Christmas Market! Situated outside the Town Hall, it has a range of over 70 stalls selling Christmas gifts, arts and crafts goodies, fudge, local spirits and stocking fillers all surrounding the beautiful Christmas tree in the heart of Chester City Centre.
