We will head north to the medieval walled town of Caernarfon, a busy market town boasting a mighty 13th century Castle.

Today we venture into the very heart of Snowdonia to Llanberis, which is home to the fascinating National Slate Museum and two narrow gauge railways, one provides relaxing trips around the lakes and the other takes you up to the very summit of Snowdon (not included in tour). We continue our journey through the "Pass of Llanberis" to the delightful village of Betws-y-Coed, which literally means "Sanctuary in the Wood".
