Snowdonia, Portmerion & Anglesey weekend

FULLY BOOKED FOLKS!


On this fantastic summer trip we will explore the most beautiful scenery North Wales has to offer and stay in a fabulous three star hotel between the Menai Straight and  stunning Snowdonia National Park. Over two days we will see soaring mountains, quirky and picturesque coastal towns and villages, a World Heritage castle and even take a wildlife cruise to Puffin Island!

After travelling from London on our luxury coach, we will visit the incredibly beautiful and quirky architecture of Portmerion Village, where 60’s TV series The Prisoner was filmed. Described as a seaside utopia, Portmerion was built in an eye-catching Italian style by architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis from 1926, and is now a haven for sightseers.

Our hotel for the night is the stylish and comfortable Celtic Royal in Caernarfon, right opposite the historic Caernarfon Castle on the Welsh coast. Facilities include a swimming pool and gym. Breakfast at the hotel is included in the price!

On the second day after breakfast we will head to Capel Curig for some free time to walk and enjoy the wonderful views over Snowdonia’s peaks. From there we will head over the Menai Straight to the Isle of Anglesey, steeped in traditional Welsh heritage and culture. We’ll visit the charming town of Beaumaris, once famous for smugglers and pirates but now a delightful waterfront town with a World Heritage Castle.

While in Beaumaris we will have the option of a Puffin Island Cruise, a 1.5 hour boat trip which takes in some spectacular scenery as well as close encounters with local wildlife in their natural habitat. As well as puffins and sea birds, we will see a colony of grey seals, and if we are lucky even bottlenose dolphins!

We will then board the coach for a relaxing trip back to London, refreshed and full of happy memories of our Welsh weekend.

      August 20

    • Rebecca C.

    Hi,
    I'd love to join you on this trip but am just a little unsure about logistics as I live in Cambridge. What time would I need to be at South Kensington and what time would we arrive back on the Sunday evening please?
    Many thanks!

  • Caroline D

    Hi I am interested in the Snowdonia trip but just wondered how long you are expecting the coach travel to take each way

    July 19

    • Rebecca C.

      Hi Caroline! Its quite a long trip, about 5 hours, but we'll break this up with rest stops and movies so it will fly by! And part of the way we'll have the lovely Snowdonia scenery to admire!

    Hi Becca,

    I actually didn't mean to confirm this trip, so please can you direct me how to undo that. I wanted to join the group because it looks fab. I'm going to consider this trip, but not ready to confirm and pay for it at this early stage. Thanks Louise

    June 7

    • Rebecca C.

      Hi Louise, I've changed it for you (for future resference it says 'change your RSVP' at the top of the list of attendees). However, I do hope you can come along! :)

      June 10

    • Louise

      Thank you Becca. Can you tell me what degree of tough walking is involded? I have to be careful with my back if the walking is a bit too rugged.

  • Martin

    Dad is away, I can't go to this now! :(

  • Leah

    I'm scheduled to work that weekend, so can't be sure I can get time off, I'll have to wait and see. Loved the idea of camping too...hopefully the low take up this time doesn't put you guys off planning something like that again in the future...it's a great idea.

    June 3

  • Leah

    Wow, disappointed...just bought a tent and booked the time off work. Was waiting until that was confirmed before I booked. It's a shame you couldn't have waiting to see if more people would have joined.

    June 2

    • Rebecca C.

      Very Sorry Leah, I was about to email you. Sadly the decision came from above me to cancel the camping trip today. It was looking more than likely we wouldn't have gathered enough attendees for it to go ahead at this point, and it saves cancelling last minute. I know this probably doesn't help, but I am dissapointed too! I hope you can make the August trip instead.

      June 2

  • Anna

    I bought a pop-up tent which I have never used and I gather they're difficult to pack up after using even if I manage to put it up with no difficulty. Do we have to supply and put up our own tents? As with Mms's question, I'm not sure what you mean by camping gear? And the 7am start means getting up at about 5.15am! Perhaps that's why so few people have signed up for this trip, though it sounds wonderful, or maybe it's having to have your own tent.

    May 31

    • Anna

      Thanks Rebecca. So I will come if I have managed to practise putting my tent up and down before then.

      June 1

    • Rebecca C.

      Hi Anna, due to lack of interest on the camping front I've changed this to a hotel stay and changed the date. I hope you can still make it! :)

      June 2

  • Mms

    camping gear... exactly how much do we need?

    May 31

    • Rebecca C.

      Its only one night, and we're not exactly in the wilderness! So a tent, sleeping bag and probably a torch will do you..! :)

      May 31

    • Mms

      thanks

      May 31

  • Leah

    Hi Becca & Co. This looks awesome...I plan on joining you guys on this one but will sign up in a couple of weeks.
