Get into the Christmas spirit on this short getaway and join Santa and his Little Helpers as he makes a special appearance on the Llangollen Railway! This weekend we also include admission into the unique townscape of Portmeirion for a delicious food & craft fair.
DURING YOUR STAY
Day 1 – This morning we visit Portmeirion. Standing on a clifftop overlooking Cardigan Bay, Portmeirion was specifically designed and built by Welsh architect, Sir Clough Williams-Ellis in the style of an Italianate village. Here, we will visit the Food & Craft Christmas Fair alongside traditional wooden chalets selling local produce. The event also has live music, cookery demonstrations and a magical Christmas grotto. After some free time, we take you to the hotel where we will enjoy dinner.
Day 2 – After breakfast we take you to the little town of Llangollen, where we have arranged a very special journey for you. All aboard the Llangollen Railway, where your decorated carriage awaits ready to transport you to ‘Lapland’ (or Carrog as it’s known throughout the year). Join Santa on-board, and sit back and relax as Santa’s Little Helpers serve you a mince pie and mulled wine during the enjoyable journey.
