Full description
Immerse yourself in Welsh culture, heritage, and history on an unforgettable sightseeing day trip. Visit numerous attractions in the area including Snowdonia National Park, Caernarfon Castle, and Conwy Town and Castle all from the comfort of a minibus.   Start your day with a drive on the Great Orme Road, with spectacular views of cliffs, wildlife, and the Irish Sea and Anglesey. Your first stop may just be the highlight of your day: take a tour of the ancient Conwy Town and Castle. Walk the castle walls, stroll along the Conwy estuary, see some old Tudor houses, and take in traditional Welsh art and craft shops. In town, you’ll also see the finest surviving town house of the Elizabethan era to be found anywhere in Britain, as well as Great Britain’s smallest house.   Then, drive into the glacial Nant Ffrancon Pass and Ogwen Valley in the heart of Snowdonia National Park, where you’ll take in views of the lakes, mountain villages, and the towering Snowdonia mountain range. Here, your guide will share with you some local history, Welsh myths, and legends along the way.   After lunch at the National Slate Museum, visit Dolbadarn Castle and Llanberis, overlooking Padarn Lake. Stop at the lakeside and take in views of a beautiful sculpture of King Arthur’s sword, Excalibur.   Finally, visit Caernarfon Castle and take a walk around this UNESCO World Heritage Site. A brute of a fortress, its immense strength remains undimmed. History comes alive here along its lofty walls, twin-towered gatehouse, and the surrounding town’s narrow and colorful streets.
