Wales

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.
