VISIT - PLACES OF INTEREST

The Snowdonia National Park is a special part of the country where people come to relax and enjoy a wide range of leisure activities in spectacular surroundings. The area has not changed a lot over the years. It still looks as beautiful and and un-spoilt as it did 300 years ago.

 

Visit Snowdon at 3,560ft, the highest mountain in Wales and England, Ride a heritage railway to the summit, ride a victorian tram, a cable car, climb turrets and winding stairs in our castles of Conwy, Caernarfon , Harlech or Beaumaris .

 

Going somewhere has never been so much fun. With attractions in North Wales you’ll discover gardens to explore, museums to visit, zoos, aquariums and national trust parks and historical buildings, and over 100 lakes and forestry to wander and discover.

 

One gem to mention would be port merion, a stunning Italian village built from 1925, and set amongst beautiful forestry on the shorelines of an estuary.

Our mild (and yes, sometimes wet) climate lends an exotic touch to some of our coastal gardens. Inland they are havens of shelter and wildlife. If you prefer to see the “wild” in wildlife? Boat trips will help you spot seals, porpoises and dolphins. Bird-lovers will want to train their binoculars on our sea cliffs and open countryside.

 

Wonder deep into the bowels of our past, visiting many of our underground caves and tourist attractions, learning about our culture and history with mining, or go caving, abseiling and zip-lining in the disused ancient mines

 

Heritage railways are among the highlights of attractions in North Wales. They twist around our hills and valleys mountains

 

Our museums and galleries are among other attractions in North Wales that bring to life local history.

 

Every year over 6 million visitor days are spent here, so browse our places to visit and start planning your trip.
