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.

In the unlikely event of a steam locomotive breaking down, we reserve the right to substitute the engine with a diesel locomotive.

Changes to your itinerary

In certain circumstances it may be necessary to change the order in which the itinerary is operated.

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.

Meal arrangements

Where meals are not included, your Tour Manager will ensure there are suitable stops made for you to purchase and enjoy lunch and/or dinner each day.

Triple rooms

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.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Plymouth Single traveller
This was a very busy break with a lot of travelling. However the organisation was very good with sufficient comfort breaks en route. The driver was excellent - very calm and professional. I couldn't fault the hotel: not sophisticated but very clean and comfortable. Friendly staff and DELICIOUS vegetarian food.
Rhyl was dismal, however.

Colin & Joan

Redruth cornwall Couple
Had a grand time when we got there but 12 hours on the coach was not good
The visits were good but not long enough at each, I think fewer places and more
time at each.
The train rides were great .

if the itinery had been as quoted we would have had nice weather for snowdon trip

then not good weather when we spent most of the day on the coach and on several super trains rides.

We would like to say how good Rob the driver was he was very helpfull
The tour manager insisted on keeping everything secret until the last minute
also the extra visit to Anglesey was time wasted as it was all closed as it was Sunday

Somewhat surprised that the the transit bus had to come some 80 miles for us (first pick up). Also driver drove off with our hand luggage and had to be phoned to return to Exeter Services.

Crewkerne, Somerset Couple
A very enjoyable time, met some lovely people. Hotel OK? BUT breakfast was very good, a lot of choice and cooked to perfection, however Dinner had the thumbs down for us, we only ate on the first night and chose to eat elsewhere for subsequent evenings. Very basic dinner and in our opinion it looked like freezer to table meals, not impressed.

JO

Camborne, Cornwall Single traveller
It was an excellent holiday. The coach driver was amazing how he managed the narrow roads and even passing caravans on them.
It was our fault we did not realise it was only a 2 star hotel, but it was very good, friendly staff and food good, everything was adequate, and especially clean.
The coach manager, mind not a coach guide??? was Ok but a little bossy in his attitude rather than being friendly. A "Good morning" each day, "Did you sleep well?" "Did you enjoy the railway?" would have been nice. I noticed no cap or bowl was passed around for a tip, so was this the feeling of others, in that he just did his job, rather than wishing we all had a good time. This was my first trip with Newmarket and I would go again.
