Visit the idyllic resorts of Llandudno & Snowdonia and prepare to fall in love with many beautiful landscapes including Anglesey, Conwy, Betws y Coed and Llanberis.

DURING YOUR STAY
Day 1 – After pick-ups we travel to our hotel via the walled city of Chester.
Day 2 – After breakfast we travel to Conwy, the World Heritage Site famous for its magnificent 13th century castle and walls. Followed by a trip to Betws y Coed which is also known as ‘the gateway to Snowdonia’. This magical setting has a distinctly Alpine feel – this is especially thanks to the Gwydyr Forest that surrounds the area. Finally, we travel to Llanberis, which sits at the foot of the highest mountain in Wales; Snowdon.
Day 3 – Enjoy a free day today to enjoy the local area of Llandudno. Here you can do a spot of shopping, try your luck in the arcades and take a stroll along the lovely, sandy beach.
Day 4 – This morning we visit the Isle of Anglesey, famous for its ‘moonscape’ landscapes which are home to an extraordinary amount of birds and wildlife. As soon as we cross the bridge, we’ll be greeted with stunning scenery and unspoilt coastlines just waiting to be explored. This afternoon, we journey to one of Wales’ most impressive castles – Caernarfon Castle! King Edward I commissioned this medieval fortress in the 1280s and it’s said to be the most expensive castle ever built by a king in England.
Day 5 – We travel home via Blakemere Village, here you will find a range of boutique retail and leisure outlets, cafes and restaurants all set in and around a beautiful Edwardian stable block. We then continue home.
