North Wales

‘A nation without language is a nation without heart’

North Wales is a hidden gem waiting for your group to discover. With wonderful gardens, historic towns and grand castles cradled amongst the stunning mountain panoramas, there’s an abundance to explore. The Welsh are eminently proud of their language and heritage, and nowhere is this more true than in North Wales – it’s not hard to see why when you look at the breathtaking landscape which contrasts between rugged coastlines and the majestic mountains of Snowdonia. You can fully appreciate these exceptional views by taking a ride on the heritage railway winding through the countryside. Scenery aside, this area also boasts three World Heritage Sites offering a fascinating glimpse into North Wales’ rich history.

  • Bodnant Garden (NT)

    This Grade 1-listed National Trust garden is home to national collections of plants and champion trees, many of which are over 150 years old. The grand terraces, sweeping lawns and sublime year-round beauty of the gardens makes this a horticulturalist’s dream. With the dramatic views of Snowdonia and the Carneddau Mountains serving as a backdrop to the gorgeous gardens, this really is a must-see attraction.

  • Conwy

    This compact town is home to Quay House – the smallest house in Britain! But don’t let the size fool you, as there’s plenty to see and do. As well as an ancient castle to look around, there’s Plas Mawr – a splendid 16th century town house – on the high street, and a picturesque quay and marina to relax in whilst soaking up some superb views.

  • Portmeirion

    The iconic Italianate architecture, designed by Welsh architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis in the early 20th century, makes this an intriguing place to visit. The colourful collection of buildings is fringed with wondrous ornamental gardens, giving this village a subtropical feel that seems far flung from Wales. There’s also a great range of shops, restaurants and cafés, so you won’t be short of shopping opportunities and a bite to eat.

  • Welsh Highland Railway

    Enjoy the excitement of a nostalgic train journey on this historic railway. As you sit back and relax in the comfortable carriage, you can witness the grandeur of Snowdonia’s towering mountains and glacial landforms. The train chuffs through the countryside with its striking coastlines, ancient woodlands and sparkling rivers.

  • Guided Tour of Anglesey

    This enchanting National Trust property sits on the Menai Strait’s coastline. The historic mansion contains the largest exhibition of Rex Whistler’s works, and you’ll find unique artefacts from the Battle of Waterloo in the military museum. With a woodland walk, Australasian arboretum and Italian-style summer terrace, you’re spoilt for choice with beautiful flora to enjoy.
