Places to visit in the North Wales area

The North Wales landscape is dominated by the majestic mountains of Snowdonia. With the Snowdonia National Park being an area of outstanding natural beauty, and is a magnet for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts. Most of the Park's beautiful landscape is privately owned. The Park's Authority helps people to enjoy and appreciate the area as well as protecting and preserving it. For the adventurous we have Plas Menai the National Watersport Centre right on our doorstep (a few hundred yards away) with various activities available including sailing dinghies, keelboats and catamarans, coastal and offshore cruising in yachts, river and sea kayaking, windsurfing, powerboating, personal watercraft, general mountaineering, rock climbing, and multi activity programs. For the fit and healthy climb the summit of Snowdon, at 3,560ft the highest mountain in England and Wales, or for the less adventurous, ride on the famous rack and pinion railway up to the summit. The Italianate village of Portmeirion, where the Prisoner Sci-fi series was filmed, is always worth a visit. Of course the castles in Wales are renown for their splendor, one of which is only 2 miles away, and is one of the best preserved.

The Llyn Peninsula offers intriguing coastal towns, sandy beaches and some of the best sailing and surfing in North Wales. This mountainous coast is famous for its castles, slate mines and narrow gauge steam trains, or take a trip to Ynys Enlli - Bardsey - the island of 20,000 saints.



The Island of Anglsey has an untouched 125 mile coastline of sandy bays and cliffs, designated an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' well worth exploring. Small resorts, magnificent beaches, historic sites, family attractions, walks and wildlife, and the elegant coastal town of Beaumaris.

A bit further afield the gentle Marcher countryside around Wrexham transforms gradually into the dramatic valley and mountain setting for the lively town of Llangollen.
Explore the sandy beaches at Talacre and the secret Ceiriog Valley, visit castles (Chirk Castles), galleries (Ruthin Craft Centre), churches (St Asaph Cathedral) and historic houses (Plas Newydd and Erddig).
Fill your days with a range of outdoor activities - walking, hang gliding, climbing, fishing, canoeing and golf.
