Below is a reference guide to all sorts of adventures and attractions in each region.

useful links to events, attractions and adventures in Snowdonia

This is Snowdonia, adventure capital of the UK. We’ve mountains. Really big ones like Snowdon and Tryfan. Where you can climb, scramble, hike and abseil. And deep inside Electric Mountain, Europe’s biggest man-made cavern houses some of the world’s most powerful hydro-generators. And above ground we’ve magical landscapes in every direction. No wonder Clough Williams-Ellis chose to build the fantasy Italianate village of Portmeirion on the Snowdonia coast. We’ve the real thing, too. Like the famous medieval fortress at Caernarfon built by Edward I in 1283. And it’s more of the same wherever you go in Snowdonia. So whatever your plans after your round of golf, chances are it’s got a good view. Perfect, some might say. And who are we to argue? Here’s some links to help you plan your trip.

‘Enjoy Snowdonia’ the Snowdonia national park App is your perfect mobile guide to enjoy, explore and discover the Snowdonia National Park – one of Britain’s Breathing Spaces and greatest treasures! With over 150 attractions to choose from and even more activities to try, you’ll never struggle to answer the question “what shall we do today?” And of course you’ll need somewhere to stay.


useful links to events, attractions and adventures on the Isle of Anglesey

Award-winning beaches, like the shingle cove at Moelfre and the big sandy one at Newborough. Historic sites, like18th century Plas Newydd on the banks of the Menai Strait. Plus the unfinished medieval castle at Beaumaris. And the only working windmill in Wales, quietly turning at the village of Llanddeusant since 1335. And that’s before we’ve even started on the views. We’ve over 650 miles of public footpaths, too. So it’s great for walking or horse riding. And if you’re into sports of the water variety, there’s diving at Trearddur Bay, surfing at Silver Bay and kite surfing at Rhosneigr. And 125 miles of coast means a
whole lot of sea food. So every year we throw an Oyster and Shellfish Festival to celebrate.

Sailing. Sand. Sea air. Just some of the reasons to head for our coastline. The drive-on beach at Talacre is another. Home to Point of Ayr lighthouse, the oldest one in Wales. And at Llandudno you can ride the UK’s only cable-hauled tramway to the top of the Great Orme. Then ski down the other side. We’ve other great excuses, too. Like our history and culture. Plas Mawr in Conwy is the best surviving Elizabethan town house in Britain. Other things are cultured here. Like the landscaped gardens at Bodnant. Our wilder landscapes include watersport venues like Conwy and Prestatyn, where you can sail, jet ski, dive and fish. And, as you’d expect, we’ve a bounty of seafood, too. Including our famous Conwy mussels. Try them at the annual Conwy Feast.

It takes no time at all to get here, but you’ll soon notice a big difference. Take a look at our landscape. Fast flowing, trout-filled rivers, like the River Dee, the best view of which is from Poncysyllte Aqueduct – a terrifying 126 feet up and our newest World Heritage Site. And there are views over nine counties from Chirk Castle, the only one of Edward I’s Welsh castles still lived in today. Six of the ‘Seven Wonders of Wales’ are right here. Llangollen Bridge dates back to the 1300s in this bustling market town full of bars and restaurants to tempt your palate. We’ve other wonders, too. Every year, around 5,000 competitors from all over the world flock to Llangollen’s famous International Musical Eisteddfod. And that’s not the only thing we’re famous for. The grounds at National Trust’s Erddig have 13 miles of footpaths. So perhaps time to don your walking boots.
