WHY NORTH WALES?
North Wales is an ancient and unspoilt land where history meets legend, mountains flow into the sea, mediaeval architecture meets industrial revolution, world-class outdoor pursuits meet 1st class travel and an ancient language and unique Celtic culture meet 5 start Hotels and a flourishing foodie scene.
Being less internationally renowned than its better-known neighbours, North Wales is less trodden by tourism and still unspoilt enough to feel real. With a hugely diverse range of attractions, entertainment and activities, its endlessly fascinating and praised by the Rough Guide as ‘the most beguiling part of the British isles’ and ‘’one of the finest natural playgrounds in Europe’’.
Wales may be a small country, but it’s packed with things to see and do – and all the main attractions of North Wales are within a relatively small area making it ideal for day trips from a central base. There are a number of fabulous hotels and restaurants in the area which we can advise on.
North Wales also has excellent travel links with the rest of the UK. Manchester Airport, the UK’s largest international airport outside of London, is less than an hour’s drive from the North Wales border. Ferries from Anglesey’s Holyhead Port link directly to Dublin in Ireland and trains from Chester and Crewe, just across the border, link directly into the UK mainline rail network. The English Lake District, Scotland, The Cotswolds and London are all less than a half-day drive away.
No wonder the Rough Guide voted Wales as one of the top 10 countries in the World to visit.
