Day 1Join your coach this morning and head for scenic North Wales and the Queen of Welsh Resorts, Llandudno, set on a sweeping bay with the towering Great Orme overlooking the dramatic scenery. On arrival take time to settle in to your hotel and perhaps take a stroll along the wide promenade for a breath of sea air, or a browse around the shops of the town centre which are both right on your central hotel's doorstep. Take time for a drink in the bar before your first evening meal and meet your fellow travellers.
Days 2 to 4Enjoy a delicious 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. Retaining much of its Victorian charm, there are lovely beaches, plenty of shops and restaurants to explore and a long pier to stroll down. But make sure you are ready for your fantastic excursions with a visit to Conwy, one of Britain’s best-preserved medieval towns followed by a trip over to the beautiful Isle of Anglesey with a stop at its upmarket and equally stunning seaside town of Beaumaris that sits with its own castle overlooking the Menai Strait. Also experience a trip into the heart of scenic Snowdonia for a stunning scenic tour to one of the most breathtaking areas of the UK.
No matter what you get up to during the day, you can always look forward to a warm welcome from your hotel when you return.
Day 5After a final delicious Welsh breakfast, join your coach this morning and sit back and relax as you travel homewards with lots of beautiful memories.
Conwy, Isle of Anglesey & BeaumarisINCLUDED Visitor DestinationThe waterside market town of 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. Conwy Castle, a World Heritage Site, was a key part of the ‘iron ring’ of fortresses built around Snowdonia in the 13th century, and still dominates the picturesque setting. The quaint high street has plenty to explore, including the fascinating 16th Century Plas Mawr said to be the best example of an intact Elizabethan house where history has stood still, or make your way down to the quay to see the smallest house in Britain, just 10 feet by 6 feet and last lived in by a 6 foot 3 inch tall gentleman!
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.
Snowdonia Scenic TourINCLUDED Visitor DestinationNorth Wales and the Snowdonia National Park boasts vast areas of natural beauty and unique scenery. It is known as Eryri by the Welsh, a name that can be translated as “the place of the eagles”. The park which covers 838 square miles is one of the three national parks found in Wales and the oldest one being designated as one in 1951.
LllandudnoIn a nutshell, everyone loves Llandudno. Who could possibly argue with that while strolling along Llandudno’s 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. Llandudno’s 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. Llandudno 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.
