Portmeirion & Trefriw Woolen Mills
Created by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975, the unique and altogether magnificent Italianate village of Portmeirion combines spectacular gardens and architectural surprises at every turn. We then call in at the family-run Trefriw Woollen Mills where there’s an opportunity to buy traditional Welsh woollens and other locally crafted souvenirs.
Llandudno, Betws-y-Coed, and the Slate Museum
This morning we take the scenic drive to Llandudno, a seaside resort that retains much of its Victorian charm. Here there is free time to stroll along the famous promenade and pier. There is also time to have lunch in one of the many cafes and restaurants. After lunch we drive through the Conway valley to Betws y Coed. This means prayer house in the woods in Welsh. Browse the independent shops particularly for local crafts, clothing, gifts, and homemade produce. Finally we return to Llanberis to the National Slate Museum, where the strikes, suffering, craftsmanship and community of the Welsh mining culture can be discovered.
Caernarfon and Anglesey
A free morning to explore Caernarfon and admire the view of the impressive castle. We then travel across the Menai Straight to the island of Anglesey to ‘find’ the remarkable Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens. Normally closed in the winter, the garden will open just for your group, where you can admire the vast array of plants and flowers and enjoy tea and Welsh cakes.
Ask the Greatdays team for ideas for stop-offs on the way.
