A magnificent region of well-preserved castles, sandy beaches, idyllic villages, rugged terrain and inspiring vistas...
- North Wales is steeped in Welsh culture. It’s a region that shares a passion for the Welsh language, music and history, offering magnificent well-preserved castles, sandy beaches, idyllic villages to wander through, rugged terrain and inspiring vistas. This rural delight is just a few hours from the major gateway cities of Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham.
- The scenery in North Wales is among the best in Britain; mountains, lakes and waterfalls create breath-taking serenity. In Snowdonia National Park, Mount Snowden is the tallest mountain in Wales and taller than any mountain in England.
- Thus, it’s a land of natural adventure, perfect for mountain and water-based outward-bound activities. Yet, the cutting edge of man-made exhilaration can also be experienced here. The excitement of activities such as surfing and zip wires have been enhanced by placing them within awe-inspiring landscapes.
- Surf Snowdonia is a 300-meter-long, fresh-water lagoon, set in the lush, green Conwy Valley, in the lee of the Snowdonia mountains. As the world’s first inland surf lagoon, this attraction offers the chance to surf, or learn to surf, surrounded by green mountains.
- Not so far away, Penrhyn Quarry, once the biggest quarry in the world, is now home to Zip World, the first 4-person zip line in Europe. Zip World offers high intensity zip line experiences across amazing landscapes and through incredible underground caverns.
North Wales’ dramatic landscapes, valleys and settlements are happily strewn with cosy cafes and warm pubs. Where better to stop off for some nourishing food served with a friendly Welsh welcome on the way?
The region also offers some notable venues for hosting large events and fantastic activities and experiences. There are plenty of good quality hotels, especially in the many seaside resorts, such as Conway, Colwyn Bay, Llandudno and Rhyll, and further inland in Wrexham.
