North Wales

The fastest zipwire in the world. The tallest mountain in Wales. 250 miles of unspoilt coastline. Whatever you’re hoping to find, you’re sure to discover it in North Wales – where sandy beaches lie near glacial lakes and ancient monuments. It really is one of the most varied areas in the whole of the UK.

Panorama of Conwy Caste

Comprising Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Gwynedd, Wrexham, and the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales is home to stunning scenery, action-packed adventure, and historic landmarks. In Conwy, squeeze into the smallest house in Britain – which measures just 10 x 6 feet – before scaling the magnificent battlements of Conwy castle. This town of extremes means you’ll never run out of things to do, though there’s always time to slow down with a stroll along its marina and quay.

To the north-west of the mainland, the Isle of Anglesey promises a spectacular day trip and is easily accessible from anywhere in North Wales. Alternatively, spend a week there and soak in every inch of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. From spotting puffins at South Stack Lighthouse to visiting its six Blue Flag beaches, there’s lots to tick off from your North Wales bucket list.

Great Orme Tramway

In the town of Llandudno, hop aboard Britain’s longest cable car and head to the top of Great Orme. From here, you’ll enjoy gorgeous views across the whole of North Wales and beyond, providing plenty of inspiration for your next tourist stop.  In need of inspiration now? You’re in the right place.
