Liverpool - Snowdonia & Conwy Castle

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.
