Day 1

London - Peak District

Join the tour early morning from your pick up point, and begin to head north towards the Peak District. The Peak District was England's first National Park and is considered one of its most scenic regions with amazing backdrops of rolling hills, lakes and woodland. Driving through the National Park you will enjoy breath-taking views of beautiful open countryside, landscaped moors, woods, and pastoral valleys. Our first stop will be Buxton - described as the "Gateway to the Peak District National Park". Here see the ancient Roman spas', the Opera House and enjoy free time to explore. Later drive to the village of Castleton, the fabulous views crafted by its location on the cusp of the Peak District are truly marvellous.

Day 2

Llandudno - Llanberis - Snowdonia

Depart towards North Wales. We will reach our first destination which will be Llandudno - an impressive promenade, which adds to the Victorian charm of the town. 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.

Enjoy a ride on the Llandudno Cable Car in Hope Valley, as the cable cars glide silently from Hope Valley to the summit of the Great Orme (679ft) a magnificent panorama unfolds - breath taking views of Llandudno, the Little Orme, Conwy Estuary and beyond. The Llandudno Cable Car is the longest passenger cable car system in Britain. Choose return (18 minute ride) or single from Happy Valley or the summit. Or 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!

Later depart for Snowdonia National Park in Gwynedd to visit Snowdon which is the highest mountain in Wales. It is highest point in the British Isles outside the Scottish Highlands. Snowdon has been described as "probably the busiest mountain in Britain". It is designated as a natural nature reserve for its rare flora and fauna.

If you decide to take the optional train journey, you will start from Llanberis station to begin your adventurous journey and to experience the awe inspiring journey by rack railway to Clogwyn.


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. The Summit of Snowdon and Hafod Eryri, is not open for the entire 2021 - the Snowdon railway will go up until Clogwyn.

If you choose not to take the train journey you will have free time to explore this beautiful area.

Llandudno Cable Car and tramway entrances are not included and are only bookable on the day of arrival. The cable car attraction only accepts cash.

Currency

 

In Scotland the currency you will require will be Pounds (GBP/Sterling). Star Tours’ advices passengers to exchange any spending money for their holiday before they actually travel. Whilst on tour it is very inconvenient to change money and most places we will be visiting will not have ATM machines or accept credit/debit cards.

 

We also advice our passengers to keep some change in coins on them whilst on tour as using toilets in many parts of Scotland is not free.

 

Distances

 

An important point to note whilst on a touring holiday is that some long journeys are unavoidable especially when travelling from city to city.

 

It is advisable passengers carry necessities that they may need for the day such as water, dry snacks, cameras etc. with them in their hand luggage.

 

For this tour it should be noted that the travel times are extensive on this tour.

 

Food

 

Breakfast will be provided at the hotels. The breakfast is usually in a separate dining area of the hotel, and is usually a continental breakfast, which will consist of tea, coffee, bread, cereals, fruit and yogurt.

 

Passengers can choose from different diets, including vegetarian, Jain or non-vegetarian (Halal will not always be available) meals. Passengers should advice their tour representative of their preferred diet on the day one. The meals are pre-set buffet and a choice of menu is not available. Meals will be provided with Tap Water only.

Lunches are usually vegetarian only and are provided outdoors at a service station/rest area where limited or no seating is available. Lunch is served in a picnic style buffet arrangement. Dinners are usually provided within the hotel or restaurant in a separate dining facility. You should always consult your tour representative if you are not sure of what ingredients a dish contains.

Please also note that not all hotels provide a kettle so if hot water is required for warming milk etc in the hotel then it is advisable to carry a bottle warmer / kettle as well as a thermos flask. Passengers may also want to carry a small travel iron and hair dryer etc, as many hotel rooms may not have these facilities.

The maximum occupancy per room on this tour is 3 person(s).

 

Other Advisories

 

High Altitude

 

You should only make trips to high altitudes if you feel healthy. The following recommendations apply:

 

Advanced age is no barrier to high altitude. For blood pressure patients who are well controlled with medication, the altitude is not a concern. Asthmatics can travel to high altitudes without any problems. High-altitude air is less polluted with particles that can cause an asthma attack. Epileptics who are well controlled with medication should be able to negotiate the altitude.

 

Pregnant women: There may be a certain risk for pregnancy even without pre-existing diseases over 2500-3000 metres. Caution is therefore advised if in doubt, please consult your doctor in advance.

 

Infants: Short-term stays at the mountain tops are unproblematic. Infants and young children are often unable to equalise pressure during descent and are therefore increasingly at risk of ear irritation. Regular swallowing (drinking, sucking on a bottle) during the descent can prevent the occurrence of irritation.

Because children can chill faster than adults, always pay attention to sufficient protection from the cold at high altitude. Sunglasses and a good sunscreen are necessary on the glaciers!

 

High altitude visits not recommended for:

Lung and heart patients who are already short of breath while at rest or when climbing stairs are advised not to stay at high altitude. Patients with angina pectoris or severely impaired performance with heart enlargement and heart failure should not visit high altitude. Coronary artery disease (angina pectoris) and heart enlargement with medical therapy should not visit high altitude. Patients with a pronounced risk profile for cardiovascular disease (smoker + high blood pressure + diabetes + high blood fats + overweight + occasional chest pain) should consult the doctor before visiting high altitude.

 

Do not stay at high altitude after having striated muscles or a stroke.

Weather

 

Passengers can be well prepared by ensuring they are carrying appropriate clothing, footwear and accessories.
