Full description

Discover the history and heritage of Wales on this day tour. Together with an expert guide, spend the day exploring the locations that made this country what it is today. Visit Bodnant Garden, Snowdonia National Park, waterfalls, castles, and more.

Start at the jewel of the Welsh seaside resorts and see the beautiful bay of Llandudno and its Victorian heritage of architecture.

Drive the Great Orme Road, the longest of its kind in the UK, in search of the world-famous Kashmiri goats. Marvel at the showcase of spectacular cliffs, wildlife, and elevated views out to the Irish Sea and Anglesey.

Head to the ancient medieval castle town of Conwy to view the castle’s domineering and towering walls, whose magnificent towers stand tall over the beautiful estuary.

Marvel at Great Britain’s smallest house, a little gem set upon the bank of the estuary and built into the castle walls. With arms outstretched, you can touch either side.

Visit the world-famous Bodnant botanical gardens, the UK's regular award winner with intimate corners, sweeping lawns, grand terraces, and verdant woodland.

Reconnect with nature as you explore the 80 acres of formal hillside terraces, riverside dells, woods, and meadows. A gardener’s dream and a lovers’ paradise, there are many things to love at the Bodnant Garden.

Later, visit the unrivaled awe-inspiring Snowdonia National Park and its spectacular rugged landscaped driving routes. Stop at viewpoints, witnessing great lakes such as Mymbyr, Gwynant, and Padarn. Spot glacial valleys, rivers, Mount Snowdon, and other surrounding summits.

Drive down the driving route of Pen-y-Pass, one of Wales’ most spectacular drives.

Visit the National Slate Museum next. The slate industry was one of the main economic motors of Wales. Step back in time and immerse yourself in a variety of talks and demonstrations to give you real insight into the hardships of past quarry life.

Stop at the village of Llanberis and Padarn County Park, set within some of the most spectacular scenery in North Wales. Venture to the spectacular setting of the Dolbadarn Castle ruins through the forest to the gateway of Snowdonia to learn about its fascinating past.
