This full day of touring showcases the beauty of the Snowdonia National Park and the very popular village of Port Meirion.

Setting off from the pier, you will first traverse the Menai Strait and drive through the picturesque Snowdonia National Park, enjoying the awesome passing scenery along the way. Your coach will then head south towards Porthmadog and the very unique Italianate fantasy village of Portmeirion - designed by the eccentric Welsh architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis. The village, which commands magnificent sea views towards Snowdonia, was built from 1925 to 1976 with the intention of proving how it is possible to develop a beautiful setting without spoiling it. Portmeirion is now recognised as one of the most successful British architectural projects of the twentieth century. After a 1-hour guided walking tour, you are free to wander through the streets of the village at your leisure, exploring the shops that sell famous Portmeirion china. Portmeirion has become famous for its distinctive pottery - now very much a collector's item. There will be plenty of opportunity to buy some pieces during your visit here which would make an ideal gift for friends and family back at home.

Before re-joining your coach for the return journey to Holyhead, you will be treated to a relaxing lunch at the atmospheric Castell Deudraeth - a wonderful bistro restaurant located in the castle that looks out over the village of Portmeirion.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 1 hour of moderate walking - this includes some slopes and uneven surfaces. Any additional walking during free time is at the guest's discretion. The tour is not recommended for wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns should evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. It is recommended that guests wear comfortable walking shoes and dress for the possibility of rain. The trip to Portmeirion is 1 1/2 hours in each direction. Comfort stops are not scheduled, but may be requested. Order of sites visited may vary.
