Criccieth, situated on the Llyn Peninsula, is a pretty, unspoilt Victorian seaside resort with two beaches and a castle to explore. This themed break offers old fashioned fun with an old penny to spend on a welcome drink, a visit to the Home Front experience in Llandudno, a nostalgic train journey from Porthmadog and an ice cream to enjoy in Criccieth.

Wednesday: A free day to explore Criccieth and enjoy a local Cadwalader’s ice cream by the sea.
Thursday: Today we visit the harbour town of Porthmadog, where there will be time to have a look around and also take a steam train journey on the Welsh Highland and Ffestiniog Railway.
Friday: With our luggage loaded, it is time to begin the journey home.
