London - Llandudno (Distance: 420 Kms)
This morning will make our journey towards North Wales, to Llandudno. This town has an impressive promenade, which adds to the Victorian charm of the ocal surroundings. There are two beautiful beaches, which are located at the picturesque backdrop of the Snowdonia Mountains.
Enjoy free time on the beach of Llandudno. Here enjoy a walk along the longest pier in Wales; ride on Britain's only cable-operated tram to the summit of The Great Orme. Llandudno Museum is well worth a visit and shopaholics will love the recently opened Victoria shopping centre.
You can also choose to ride on the Llandudno Cable Car in Hope Valley during your visit to this beautiful resort. As the cable cars glide silently from Hope Valley to the summit of the Great Orme (679ft) a magnificent panorama unfolds - breathtaking views of Llandudno, the Little Orme, Conwy Estuary and beyond. The Llandudno Cable Car is the longest passenger cable car system in Britain. Alternatively you can enjoy the Great Orme Tramway, which is Britain's largest and most spectacular funicular tramway. The Tramway climbs one mile to the Orme's summit offering breath taking views of Llandudno's magnificent bays and beyond! The Tramway has been thrilling old and young for over 100 years and is a unique attraction not to be missed!
Llandudno Cable Car and tramway are only bookable on the day of arrival and are not included in the tour cost. The cable car attraction only accepts cash.
Later we will check in to the hotel for a night stay.
Llanberis - London (Distance: 390 Kms)
Today morning after your packed breakfast. We will depart for our main attraction which will be Snowdon Mountain.
Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales with an altitude of 1,085 metres (3,560 ft) above the sea level. It is highest point in the British Isles outside the Scottish Highlands. It is located in Snowdonia National Park in Gwynedd, and has been described as "probably the busiest mountain in Britain". It is designated as a natural nature reserve for its rare flora and fauna.
You can book tickets for the Snowdon railway directly or you can buy tickets at time of booking on our website at an additional cost. If booking directly with Snowdon Railway only book the tickets once we have confirmed the time and departure.
We will arrive at Llanberis station to begin our adventurous journey. Llanberis in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, to experience the awe inspiring journey by rack railway to ¾ of the way up to the top of Snowdon the highest mountain in Wales and England.
From the moment you leave the station your train will begin the journey upwards to the clouds, a journey experienced by some 12 million intrepid travellers since 1896. If you are lucky enough to have tickets on the "Snowdon Lily" your carriage will be pushed by one the original 1896 steam locomotives or by the diesel train and you will immediately begin to hear the noble engine exerting its effort as you climb upwards and on towards the roof of the principality. From the first glimpse of the waterfall in Llanberis to the point at which your train crests the mountain 45 minutes later you will have been surrounded by the views and the experience that is Eryri, the land of the Eagles.
The views from the train as you are carried along a ridge to the Summit are truly breath-taking. You will have one of the world's most spectacular panoramas at your feet. On very clear days at the Summit you can see as far as the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland and the Isle of Man. The Summit of Snowdon and Hafod Eryri, is not open for the entire 2021 - the Snowdon railway will go up until Clogwyn. You will have approx. 30 mins to enjoy the views.
After your decent back to Llanberis, we will make our way back to London.
