Itinerary

Caernarfon, The Welsh Highland Railway & Porthmadog

On Saturday after breakfast we make our way to Caernafon, a busy market town and a popular tourist centre. Most prominet in its skyline is Caernarfon Castle, possibly the most famous castle in Wales. The town has plenty of independent shops for you to browse or if you prefer a gentle stroll why not visit Victoria Dock which has successfully been redeveloped as a popular yatching marina set alongside the beautiful harbour looking out over the scenic Menai Straits and the Isle of Anglesey. The highlight of our day will be joining the Welsh Highland Railway, the uk,s longest heritage railway which runs 25 miles from Caernarfon, past the foot of Snowdon and the picture postcard village of Beddgelert towards the spectacular Aberglaslyn Pass. Leaving the mountains behind, the railway winds its way through the busy streets of Porthmadog before entering the lines terminus at the harbour Station. You will have the remainder of the afternoon at leisure to enjoy the sights of Porthmadog.

 

 

Portmeirion

On Sunday we will visit Portmeirion, a unique village which is set on its own private peninsular on the southern shores of Snowdonia. Designed by the welsh architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, Portmeirion was built in imitation of a rustic italian village, to demonstrate how naturally beautiful place could be developed without spoling it and is now acknowledged as a unique architectural work of art.  Many know Portmeirion for its role as The Village in Patrick McGoohans television series The Prisoner. It is also know for the Poermeirion Pottery, designed by Cloughs daughter Susan Ellis-Williams. The village are let as suites and rooms as part of the Portmeirion Hotel. Take a walk to the Victorian sub-tropical woodland garden know as Y Gwyllt which includes a tree trail featuring unique rhododendrons and Californian coast redwoods.
