After local pick ups we make our way to Chester for a lunch break before continuing to Caernarfon.
Today we travel over Menai Straits to Anglesey and visit Plas Newydd House & Gardens. Which is a stunning position with the garden offering views across the fabulous Menai Straits. Then it’s back to Caernarfon where we have free time to explore. You could visit the castle, just a short walk from the hotel. It was the setting for the investiture of Prince Charles as Prince of Wales and is architecturally one of the most impressive of all the castles in Wales.
After breakfast we travel to the Victorian seaside resort of Llandudno. Take a stroll along the elegant promenade past pastel coloured houses and impeccably authentic seafront architecture just like the Victorians did! Llandudno is bursting at the seams with things to see and do.
We start with a scenic train journey to Porthmadog. From there we continue to Portmeirion by coach. This unique village is set on its own private peninsula on the southern shores of Snowdonia. It was created by Welsh architect Clough Williams-Ellis to demonstrate how a naturally beautiful place could be developed without spoiling it.
After breakfast we make our way home with comfort stops en route.
