  • Visiting North Wales

    North Wales is the uppermost region of Wales, and is generally divided into three traditional sub-regions: Upper Gwynedd, Lower Gwynedd and Anglesey. It is a stronghold for the Welsh language and a centre for Welsh culture.

    North Wales is generally rural, with many mountains, valleys and a beautiful coastline along the Irish Sea. The region is also bilingual, so visitors hoping to hear the Welsh language will do well to visit the area. Almost every person a visitor may encounter can speak and understand English, but many also speak Welsh, and the farther west you travel, the more prominent it becomes. North Wales is deemed the most traditional region in Wales, in specifically referring to language, legends and lifestyle. North Wales, the island of Anglesey particularly, is the spot where the ancient Druids made their last stand against the Romans.

    If you are travelling with your family, North Wales has many family-oriented indoor and outdoor attractions and activities to entertain you, and an always ongoing calendar of events. Families will find zoos, parks, farms, trains, cultural festivals, agricultural shows and family fun days throughout the course of the year. If you prefer more outdoor, sporting activities, the region is an excellent place to walk, cycle, fish or golf, among other things. Excellent accomodation can be found at Plas Trevor Bed and Breakfast Bangor

    If you are looking to explore some of the regions more natural wonders, there are ample places to visit. In the western area of North Wales sits the Snowdonia Mountain Range, which appeals to climbers and hikers of all levels. On the nearby Llyn Peninsula, sailors and sportsmen will find some of the best beaches in all of Wales. Ynys Mon, also known as the Island of Anglesey, contains 125 miles of coastline, and holds an abundant wealth of historical sites, some dating as far back as 4000 BC! Travelling to the eastern section of North Wales, you will find the rolling, picturesque Clwydian Hills, as well as the medieval market towns of the Borderlands.

    Included in North Wales’ immaculate and pristine landscape is the tallest mountain in Wales: Mount Snowdon, standing at 3,208 feet. The summit of the mountain is believed by some people to be the last resting place of the legendary King Arthur. Those brave enough to reach the peak will be rewarded with beautiful views of Ireland and Scotland.

    Visitors hoping to travel to North Wales will be happy to hear that it is approximately four hours’ drive from London, or just two-and-a-half hours by train. Visitors coming from Ireland can take a 90 minute high-speed ferry from Dublin to Holyhead. Simply travelling from one side of the region to another will provide visitors with a large change in atmosphere, culture and scenery, but the small distance affords a wealth of charms any visitor should experience.
