Llandudno is an elegant Victorian seaside resort set in a beautiful sweeping bay, framed by two imposing headlands. If you wish we will take you around the Great Orme headland and we can stop and admire the stunning views of Anglesey and Puffin Island. Discover the connection between the Great Orme and 19th century Liverpool ship owners. There is also an opportunity to stop and learn about it's role in defending the UK during the Second World War.
Another of Edward I’s medieval fortresses is Conwy Castle which has dominated the skyline of Conwy since the 13th century. You may wish to explore the castle further at your own pace and enjoy the superb views offered from the top of one of it’s eight towers. Alternatively, you may want to just stroll around the outer castle walls which surround the town; the choice is yours, just let us know.
You can also visit Great Britain’s Smallest House which is actually listed in the Guinness Book of World Records. The last full-time occupant left the house in 1900 and he was 6 feet and 3 inches tall! Come and view the house and wonder how he must have managed!
Trefriw Woollen Mills is a working mill located in the heart of the Conwy Valley. Watch a range of products being made on a powered loom and purchase a souvenir of your North Wales Tour. If we go on the right day, you can watch rug-making and hand spinning being demonstrated.
Wales has a long history of invasion and rebellion and a short stop in the quiet village of Llanrwst allows us to visit the sarcophagus of Llewellyn the Great and learn about his eventful life as Prince of Porthmadog.
The ever-popular Betws-y-Coed which translates as ‘Prayer House in the Wood’ is a must for visitors seeking adrenaline outdoor pursuits but don’t worry, it still has plenty to offer for those seeking gentler pastimes! Have a walk around and browse gift and craft shops selling local produce. The Ugly House is an ideal place to stop and enjoy a traditional Welsh tea and decide for yourself if it is deserving of it’s title! Take a selfie with the gushing Swallow Falls Waterfall as your background as the River Llugwy crashes over craggy rocks on its journey to join the River Conwy a few miles downstream.
Being members of the National Trust we are regular visitors to the spectacular Bodnant Gardens and can personally recommend this place to anyone who appreciates beautifully landscaped gardens. Set in 80 acres, it is a melting pot of plants and trees from around the world.
