Monday Travelling via Bridgnorth we take a lunchbreak in Llangollen, before travelling via the scenic Horseshoe Pass to our hotel.
Tuesday To Bodnant Gardens, spread over 80 acres on the western slopes of Snowdonia, with interesting and beautiful plants from all over the world. We also enjoy an hour long Welsh Food History tour.

Wednesday Our first stop is at Portmeirion, a village created in 1976 with iconic architecture and surrounded by fine scenery and vast wooded gardens. Later, we round off the holiday with a ride on the Ffestiniog Railway from Porthmadog to Blaenau Ffestiniog.
Thursday 2 train rides today as we climb up towards Snowdonia and stop in Llanberis. Our first train takes us up to the summit of Snowdon. On its route it crosses two viaducts and then has wonderful views of the surrounding area. Later we enjoy a narrow-gauge steam train along the shores of Lake Padarn, right in the heart of Snowdonia.
