Port of Holyhead Shore Excursion

Here at Bespoke Tours we know that a shore excursion to North Wales may be the only time that you ever visit our beautiful region and that you will want to make the very most of your precious time here. 

That's why we have created a shore excursion itinerary that allows you to experience as many of it's famous attractions as possible in the time you have available; as one recent guest remarked to me ' I can't believe how much we've seen in the short time we have had ashore!'

As a small private group we are able to move quicker around North Wales which allows you the opportunity to see more as you won't be having to wait for other passengers to return to the coach and we can also access places which are not visited by the coach parties.

We are able to tour with a maximum of 6 guests so if you want to invite any of your fellow passengers to ​share your experience then please feel free to do so.

Please find below our shore excursion itinerary and as ever, if you wish to modify it to better suit your interests, then just let us know.

The Second Britannia Bridge, Anglesey
Looking over the Menai Strait towards the Snowdonia Mountain Range

The village with the longest name in Europe!

As soon as we have collected you then it is straight on to our first destination which is a short drive to the village with the longest name in Europe!

Have your picture taken beneath the longest village name sign in Europe and amaze your family and friends back home when you recite it all in one go (I will give you a demonstration first)!

Viewpoint Over the Menai Strait Towards the Snowdonia Mountain Range

We shall make a short stop here for a photo opportunity and see the famous Thomas Telford suspension bridge which spans the beautiful Menai Strait.

The Smallest House in Great Britain!

Whilst in Conwy you can also visit Great Britain’s Smallest House, which is actually listed in the Guinness Book of World Records! 

Come and view the house and wonder how it's previous occupants must have managed!

Betws-y-Coed and Swallow Falls

A popular destination for many visitors to North Wales. We will stop here and you can have a walk around and browse gift and craft shops selling local produce. We'll then take a short drive to Swallow Falls where you can take a short walk to view the most photographed waterfall in the UK. 

Nant Gwynant Valley

We will make a short stop here at this popular viewing point. The scenery is here is just so beautiful with rolling hills and green pastures. On a clear day we will also be able to view Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in England and Wales!

Medieval Town of Conwy

The small riverside town of Conwy is a popular attraction for visitors to North Wales.

We will make a stop here and learn the fascinating history of this iconic Welsh structure and you will also have the opportunity to take some great photographs too!

Ready for lunch?

Where to stop for lunch is entirely up to you.

We would recommend this charming traditional Welsh tearoom which overlooks the Afon (river) Conwy and which serves a selection of delicious traditional Welsh fayre including the famous 'Welsh Rarebit!'

The Smallest Chapel in Great Britain?

Many people seem to think so!

There has been a chapel on this site since the 6th century and the present building is believed to have been constructed in the 15th century. We shall stop here and take a look inside and you can see for yourself just how tiny it is inside!


This is a charming and picturesque village nestling in the Snowdonia National Park and which serves as an access point for Snowdon-bound walkers and travellers using the Welsh Highland Railway.

We will make a short stop and here and go for a short walk where you will learn about a true Welsh legend!


Caernarfon Castle

This castle formed part of Edward I's 'iron ring' and like all of his castles, it played a crucial role in his eventual conquest of Wales.

This iconic structure is very well preserved and was the venue for the inauguration of Prince Charles in 1969.
