There’s an old Welsh saying; “the best shortage is a shortage of words”.

And we can understand why.

Because when you travel through Snowdonia, the beautiful mountains leave you speechless. The Welsh castles’ battle-torn passageways are simply indescribable. And a lot of the destinations are as unpronounceable as they’re unbelievable.

So, on this trip, we let you discover the elusive beauty of Wales.

You venture through the inexpressibly beautiful valleys of a famous national park; discover a town designed like an Italian village; and learn about Chester, an English town first settled by the Romans.

Let the sights speak for themselves and join our tour of North Wales and Chester.

3 DAYS / 2 NIGHTS / MAX 16 GUESTS

Itinerary

Day 1Manchester - Conwy - Anglesey - South Stack Lighthouse - Beaumaris - Llandudno

  • Savour the seaside life in the castle-crested town of Conwy
  • Discover the rugged natural beauty of the Isle of Anglesey

You leave Manchester and head straight for the border of Wales.

Your first stop of the day is Conwy. This little town deserves to win awards for most picture-perfect harbour town. There’s a castle perched by the sea, the ‘world’s smallest house’, and lots of little restaurants boasting the best fish and chips.

After you’ve soaked up the sea air, you cross the world’s first modern day suspension bridge across the Menai Straits and onto Anglesey Island. Prior to its construction, cattle farmers would have to persuade their herd to swim across the Menai Straits on their way to market. We head for the most westerly point of North Wales to marvel at the South Stack Lighthouse, sea cliffs, and nature reserve.

But that’s not all. You stop in the lovely seaside town of Beaumaris, and also visit the town of Llanfairpwllgwyngyll for a quick photo stop.

Then you travel back over the bridge and along the coastline to Llandudno, your overnight stop.

Day 2 Llandudno - Betws-y-Coed - Harlech Castle - Portmeirion - Llandudno

  • Capture the medieval spirit of Harlech Castle
  • Wind through mountains and mines in the Snowdonia National Park
  • Feel like you’re in the Mediterranean in one of Britain’s most idiosyncratic towns, Portmeirion

This morning when you head off, your first stop is to Betws-y-Coed. This beautiful little village is known as the gateway to Snowdonia National Park.

Next, sit back and watch Snowdonia’s mountains fly by as you continue onto Harlech Castle. This is one of our favourite castles in the whole of the UK. It boasts epic sea views and an amazingly war-torn history that involves a lot of dynamite.

You then venture to one of the most charming and unique villages in Wales, Portmeirion. This town is the brainchild of Welsh architect Clough Williams-Ellis. He wanted to demonstrate how a naturally beautiful location could be developed without spoiling it. The result is a stunning piece of the Mediterranean transported into North Wales. You have free time here to explore and grab a bite to eat.

You head back to Llandudno for the evening. (B)

Day 3Llandudno - Llanberis Slate Museum - Llangollen - Chester - Manchester

  • Discover fascinating history at the Llanberis Slate Museum
  • Wander through the fine, historic alleyways of Chester

After breakfast, your first stop is to the Llanberis Slate Museum*. The history of the second largest slate mine on the planet will stay in your memory for a long time.

For your lunch stop today, we head to Llangollen. Situated along the River Dee, this little town will steal your heart.

Next you’re off to one of England’s most historic towns, Chester. There’s a lot to do here, but we’d advise you just head to the Cathedral, you could spend a whole week in this fine building and not get bored.

You arrive back in Manchester in the early evening. (B)
