Departing from your local area, we drive
to North Wales and arrive late afternoon at the
Evans Hotel for the next 4 nights stay with dinner,
bed and breakfast.


We call at Betws-y-Coed for a short
break before we head to Bala and ride on the
diminutive Bala Lake railway. There is time for
lunch in Bala before we leave for Portmeirion, on
the shores of Cardigan Bay. We visit this unique
attraction, setting for the cult TV series, ‘The
Prisoner’ and afterwards we return to the hotel.


The Llanberis Lake Railway is our
train ride today and a lovely ride along the lake
shore. There is time for lunch in Llanberis. This
afternoon we return to Caernarfon by coach for
free time and perhaps a visit to the impressive
castle (entry extra).


A wonderful train ride along the Vale of
Conwy to Blaenau Ffestiniog is the first of our train
rides today. We then catch the Ffestiniog railway
for an exhilarating ride across the mountains,
descending to the sea at Porthmadog before
catching the Welsh Highland railway Train which
takes us through Beddgelert and all the way back
to Caernarfon, rejoining our coach for Llandudno.
There are buffet cars available so you have time
to get some lunch at your leisure.


After breakfast we leave Wales and head for
