Snowdon is Wales’ highest mountain and the Snowdonia landscape offers soaring peaks and deep valleys. Walking in the area will reward you with stunning views from on high and picturesque villages scattered down below. You can choose between conquering the 1,085-metre peak of Snowdon on foot, taking a leisurely train ride to the summit or a mixture of both. Image by diego_torres from Pixabay

Set in the market town of Llanrwst on the northeast edge of Snowdonia National Park. A picture-postcard location, the award-winning tearoom lies on the west bank of the River Conwy. Covered in ivy and leased by the National Trust, this traditional Welsh tea rooms serves up delectable tasty treats, with the secret scone recipe remaining the same for over 50 years.

The north of Wales is also home to many a castle. With three of worthy of mention here for you to visit - Penrhyn near Bangor, the Isle of Anglesey's Beaumaris Castle and the World Heritage Site castle at Caernarfon.


A popular coastal resort in southern Snowdonia, with big beaches, a picturesque harbour and splendid views.

Set on its own private peninsula, and designed by architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis in the 1920s, this charming coastal village represents his fantasy of a classical Italianate village in the Mediterranean, transplanted to a romantic clifftop location. The 50 pastel-painted buildings and the grand piazza are a treat for the eyes, and there are 70 acres of woodland and sub-tropical gardens filled with exotic plants.


A few miles from Portmeirion, the seaside resort of Porthmadog is the biggest town in this part of Northwest Wales. A few miles further west is the village of Morfa Bychan and walking here affords views across to the coast at Black Rock Sands. The beach here is wide and open, so much so you can actually drive onto the beach and park awhile.
