NORTH WALES ITINERARY
Leaving Manchester, we head out along the M56 motorway towards the mystical land known as Wales. You will see the mountains ahead of you in the distance on a clear day.
Occasionally, we may route through the amazing 2,000 year old City Of Chester</strong></a>, with its Roman heritage and ancient racecourse before hitting the road to the legendary land of Wales in a <strong>60-minute fully-narrated journey.
Arriving at Llandudno we will ascent the steep Great Orme and marvel at the views and visit the 12th Century hidden chapel of St. Tudno with its Blue Stained Glass Window, Double Headed Dragon and the Stigmata. Then it is a short ride down to the town itself for a stroll down the original wooden pier far out to sea.
Next is the walled town of Conwy, constructed by the English monarch Edward I between 1283 and 1289 as one of the key fortresses in his ‘Iron Ring’ of castles to contain the Welsh. The castle is renowned as one of the finest examples in the World.
Conwy Castle is a gritty, dark-stoned fortress built by James of St. George in partnership with the frenchman Richard The Engineer. This castle is the “real thing” resembling exactly what children form from buckets of sand on the beach. When you go inside (optional – entrance charge applicable ~£10.00 - pre-book only during pandemic).
Now, brace yourselves for what BusyBus has become known for (and, we modestly add, have won National awards for) the North Wales Adventure element of the tour. In to the Snowdonia National Park using carefully selected routes and taking you well and truly off the beaten track to viewpoints of wonder! You will feel like you own Snowdonia in the tranquillity and ambiance (and adventure) we have prepared!
No trip to North Wales would be complete without a stop at the “capital”, Betws-Y-Coed (prayer-house in the woods). Interestingly, whilst right in the centre of Snowdonia National Park, an exclusion boundary has allowed this fairy-tale town to flourish into the centre of outdoor tourism in Wales.
We will pass through Llangollen, the starting station for the famous and still fully-functional steam railway along with many other “claims to fame”.
You will then get a unique chance to experience the Pontcysyllte Canal Aqueduct, built by Sir Thomas Telford in 1795 and still taking canal barges across the valley high above the ground.
