This interesting tour takes us to the coast and through the magnificent Snowdonia National Park as we enjoy nostalgic journeys on the famous vintage trains of North Wales. We visit the popular seaside resort of Llandudno and take the Great Orme Tramway to the top of this landmark, enjoy journeys through Snowdonia including a visit to the top of Snowdon on the Mountain Railway and also head out to the coast at Porthmadog, before returning through the dramatic scenery on board the Ffestiniog Steam Railway.
Situated in Llanberis, at the foot of Snowdon, we will be staying at the Royal Victoria Hotel which offers breathtaking views over the surrounding lakes and mountains. The en suite bedrooms have TV, hairdryer and tea/coffee making facilities and most are served by a lift. The hotel will provide entertainment each evening during our stay.
