Itinerary

Day One

Leaving the local area early this morning we'll head to North Wales. We should arrive in Rhyl in plenty of time for you to unpack and relax before dinner.

Day Two

Today we head to the popular resort of Llandudno, where you'll have plenty of free time to enjoy the beaches, elegant promenades and stylish shops. Alternatively, join our optional full-day excursion and see the spectacular scenery of Llanberis Pass, the pretty village of Beddgelert and the delightful lakeside resort of Llanberis itself.

For many, today's highlight will be a ride on the Welsh Highland Railway. Closed in the 1930s, the line has been under restoration since 1997, and it is now possible to travel the 12 breathtaking miles from Caernarfon to Rhyd-Ddu at the foot of Snowdon.

Day Three

Following breakfast, we'll begin a day of memorable rail journeys. The Conwy Valley Line, one of Britain's most beautiful railways, takes us through heather-clad moors and mountains to Blaenau Ffestiniog. Here we'll transfer to the Ffestiniog Railway for the twisting descent through Snowdonia National Park to Porthmadog.

After lunch, we'll continue to Portmeirion, featured in the popular 1960s TV series 'The Prisoner'. Here, the ornate, colour-washed buildings and Mediterranean Piazza are surrounded by beautiful sub-tropical woodland gardens.

Day Four

Sadly, we take our leave of North Wales today, and head for home. Depending on the traffic and distance to be travelled, we should be back in the local area by early to mid evening.

Coach seating arrangements

Your Tour Manager will have allocated seats for you on the main coach in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible, and will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach.)

Joining your holiday

Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately 10 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.

The majority of these consist of a double bed and an extra bed that is often only suitable for children. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.

Leonard

Barton le Clay, Bedfordshire Couple
Both the tour Manager & the Driver did all they could to make the trip amusing and enjoyable. The train journeys were all excellent and the extra trip worked well too. Comfort stops all worked well especially Llangollen. Hotel food good enough. Hotel ground floor done up well but modernised bedrooms have split shower and toilet/wash basin into two units neither of which had room to swing the proverbial cat. Staff helpful and friendly. Entertainer good enough for this venue.
Pick-up Luton then along A6 to Bedford. We could have been picked up on this route at Barton le Clay (home) on the way as other coach companies do. I know when booking you are not to know which coach company will be employed but when the route is known it would be nice to hear of a more suitable alternative pick up point which might be more convenient for more customers. Our village is popular for this and for some companies is a starting point. All in all good monetary value.
