Let the Welsh wonders take your breath away on this rail and mini-coach tour through national parks, castles, and coastal towns.

  • Savor the seaside life in the castle-crested town of Conwy
  • Wind through mountains and mines in the Snowdonia National Park

Start your day with a high-speed rail journey to the city of Manchester where you join your mini-coach for the next three days. Once on board, you leave Manchester behind and head straight for the border of Wales.

Your first stop of the day is Conwy. This little town deserves to win awards for most picture-perfect harbour town. There’s a castle* perched by the sea, the ‘world’s smallest house’, and lots of little restaurants boasting the best fish and chips.

After you’ve soaked up the sea air, you travel to the Llanberis Slate Museum. It’s a little less cute here, but the history of the second largest slate mine on the planet will stay in your memory for a long time.

Beddgelert in Snowdonia is your next stop. This place is known as the most ‘lovely’ village in Snowdonia. And you must agree, the stone houses and arched bridge are simply beautiful.

You travel through Snowdonia as the light softens and arrive at your overnight stop in Llandudno in the evening.


  • Discover the rugged natural beauty of the Isle of Anglesey
  • Feel like you’re in the Mediterranean in one of Britain’s most idiosyncratic towns, Portmeirion

This morning, you can either stay in Llandudno and explore this seaside town and the Great Orme or join us as we head onto the Isle of Anglesey.

If you choose to come with us, you cross the world’s first modern day suspension bridge across the Menai Straits and onto Anglesey Island. Prior to its construction, cattle farmers would have to persuade their herd to swim across the Menai Straits on their way to market.

We head for the most westerly point of North Wales to marvel at the South Stack Lighthouse, sea cliffs, and nature reserve.

After a refreshing walk along the cliffs, we travel to Llynnon Mill, the last working windmill in Wales. This outstanding example of a Welsh windmill has been milling wheat since 1775 and gives you a unique insight into long forgotten era.

You go to Caernarfon for a quick lunch stop and views of its famous castle.

We then venture to one of the most charming and unique villages in Wales, Portmeirion.This town is the brainchild of Welsh architect Clough Williams-Ellis. He wanted to demonstrate how a naturally beautiful location could be developed without spoiling it. The result is a stunning piece of the Mediterranean transported into North Wales.

You arrive back in Llandudono in the early evening.


  • Capture the medieval spirit of Harlech Castle
  • Wander through the fine, historic alleyways of Chester

Your first task of the day is to watch Snowdonia’s mountains fly by as you head to Harlech Castle. This is one of our favorite castles in the whole of the UK. It boasts epic sea views and an amazingly war-torn history that involves a lot of dynamite.

You stop for lunch in the little village of Betws-Y-Coed before heading to one of England’s most historic towns, Chester. There’s a lot to do here, but we’d advise you just head to the Cathedral, you could spend a whole week in this fine building and not get bored.

You arrive in Manchester in the evening

NOTE: You can add on a train trip from London to meet up with this tour.
