Explore North Wales
With over 250 miles of coastline, majestic mountains & glorious countryside, North Wales is just waiting to be explored
North Wales provides a very diverse and unique destination. The regions that make up North Wales are distinct, each portraying their own characteristics. From the western tip of Aberdaron to the eastern town of Llangollen, you’ll discover beauty in every destination.
Journey into Snowdonia – one of Wales’ prettiest destinations. Explore the nine mountain ranges and over one hundred lakes which fit into 838 square miles of natural beauty. You’ll be amazed by the incredible valleys Snowdonia has, and the waterfalls which fall dramatically down from the mountains above. The best way to explore Snowdonia is on foot, and as you can imagine, there are plenty of walking routes to help you on your way.
Beyond Snowdonia’s mountains lies the Llyn Peninusla. And it’s thanks to the mountains that give the Llyn a real secluded feel, ideal for those looking for a real escape. The Llyn’s beautiful beaches and clear waters make it perfect for those looking for a seaside break. Abersoch is perhaps one of the liveliest towns on the Llyn with a whole host of things to do – particularly ideal for water sport enthusiasts.
If you’d prefer a day next to the sea, we’d definitely recommend exploring North Wales’ coast. By the coast you’ll discover historic towns like Conwy and Caernarfon, Blue Flag Beaches & popular seaside destinations like Rhyl and Colwyn Bay. Llandudno is a must when visiting the coast – voted by Trip Advisor as one of the best seaside destinations in Britain.
The Island of Anglesey is one of dramatic coastline & beautiful countryside. A popular destination, the island is a key part of the Wales Coast Path which surrounds Anglesey. Beautiful towns such as Beaumaris and Amlwch provide a great seaside break, especially during summer seasons when boat trips and other excursions are available.
A short trip over the border from neighbouring England, and you’ll arrive in North East Wales. The region is home to the historic town of Llangollen – a beautiful town with a rich history. Just outside of Llangollen is North Wales’ only world heritage site, the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, which is Britain’s highest and longest aqueduct. Visiting Wrexham is a must for shoppers - which provides one of the best shopping facilities in North Wales.
