Welcome to North Wales
The Adventure Capital of Europe.
However you choose to spend your free time, North Wales has so much to offer. Be it a leisurely stroll around picturesque towns such as Conwy or Llandudno, a day at the beach, historic Castles or hurtling down a zip wire at 100 miles an hour, North Wales has it all.
Here are a few suggestions for some of our favourite days out.
Bodnant Garden is one of the most beautiful gardens in the UK, spanning some 80 acres and is situated above the River Conwy on ground sloping towards the west and looking across the valley towards the Snowdonia range.
Built for King Edward I between 1283-87, Master James of St George's design at Conwy remains one of the most outstanding achievements of medieval military architecture. The distinctive elongated shape, with its two barbicans, eight massive towers and great bow-shaped hall, was perhaps determined by the narrow rocky outcrop on which the castle stands. World Heritage Site.

Zip World Fforest offers an idyllic woodland setting packed with adventures for families and thrill-seekers alike.The Fforest Coaster - the UK's only alpine coaster of its kind that allows you to speed through the trees on a toboggan-style sledge over a 1 kilometre track.

Clough Williams-Ellis built Portmeirion from 1925 to 1975 on a peninsula off the coast of Snowdonia to show how 'the development of a naturally beautiful site need not lead to its defilement'. He fought for Beauty - "that strange necessity". Portmeirion is owned by a Registered Charity called The Second Portmeirion Foundation and managed by Portmeirion Limited.
