  • From Manchester: North Wales, Snowdonia, and Chester Tour

    1. From Manchester: North Wales, Snowdonia, and Chester Tour

    The tour leaves Manchester in the morning and heads straight for the border of Wales. Conwy is the first stop of the day, one of most picture-perfect harbor towns in the world. Here you can see a castle perched by the sea, the world's smallest house, and lots of cute restaurants serving up the best fish and chips. Venture along the winding, scenic roads of the Snowdonia National Park before arriving in Betws-Y-Coed. This quaint town is known as the gateway to Snowdonia and is famous for its alpine trees and cosy cafes. Chester is your next stop. This is one of England’s most historic towns and there is plenty to do here. It's advised to go straight to the ancient cathedral and learn about its remarkable past.

    Lovely day-trip to Conwy, Snowdonia, and Chester. Wish we had more time to roam around each stop, but it was great overall. DARREN's been excellent throughout the tour, highly recommended!
