Settle back for the scenic journey through the Welsh Borders and
Llangollen and to the foot of mighty Mount Snowdon before
arriving in Llanberis for the next 4 nights with dinner, bed and


We begin our tour in the historic city of Caernarfon, dominated
by its castle and overlooking the Menai Straits. We then cross over to the
Isle of Anglesey and spend some time in the lovely town of Beaumaris.


This morning we visit Betws-y-Coed before we set off for
a ride on the Blaenau Ffestiniog Railway which used to carry slate from
the foothills of Snowdon to the coast at Porthmadog.


A real treat lies in store today as we visit Portmeirion. The unique
Itallanate style houses and pavilions were the dream of architect
William Ellis who designed his model village early in the 20th century.
Now a National Trust managed site, Portmeirion still enjoys worldwide
renown as the location for the TV series ‘The Prisoner’.


Sadly we must bid farewell to Snowdonia and make our way back
to the West Country.
