Head directly to the old town of Conwy
where your guide will take you on a guided tour of the
Castle; among the most picturesque of the Welsh fortresses.
The present castle was begun by Edward I in 1283 and
is now ruined. From the castle runs the original medieval
town wall. Conwy’s old wall is virtually intact
all around the town, fortified with 21 towers and 3
gateways. As a result, Conwy town centre has never been
over-run by modern development (all of which has happened
outside the walls) and it is therefore a wonderfully
atmospheric place. Explore the streets either with your
guide or independently.
After a tour of both the Castle and the highlights
of the walled town, re-board your coach to continue
inland towards the Snowdonia National Park. Snowdonia
is the crowning glory of Wales. It is a land of breathtaking
grandeur, perhaps the most beautiful region in the whole
of Britain. You will encounter awesome rocky mountains
and cool, leafy river glades; high, winding passes,
and lakes full of myths and legends stories of which
your guide will regale you with.
Arrive in Caernarfon where lunch will be served at
a local hotel before continuing your tour driving still
further into the very heart of Snowdonia and the magnificent
Snowdonia mountain range. Take the incredible Llanberis
Pass that skirts the base of Snowdon, the highest peak
in Britain south of the Scottish highlands at 3560 feet
high to lovely Betwys y Coed; North Wales' most popular
inland resort renowned for its popularity with hill
walkers and adventure seekers!
After a brief orientation tour with your guide enjoy
some time to soak up the beauty and atmosphere of this
most picturesque town before re-boarding your coach
to relax for the return journey to the ship in Liverpool.
