Discover a very traditional and scenic Welsh town that nearly became the capital of Wales with its 400 year old stone bridge and enjoy a visit to a former 15th century medieval court house nestled beside the river. It makes for an ideal refreshment or lunch stop. Don’t miss out on the best scones in Britain with their famous blended tea.
A lovely welsh town nestled between two rivers. We visit the local church to discover the history and culture of the town.
*Swallow Falls
One of the finest cascading waterfalls in Wales. Set amongst picturesque woodland setting, the waterfalls can be viewed and photographed at the top level as well as descending into the gorge below. *Entrance fee of £2 per person.
Enjoy the beauty of the mountains and valleys with their stunning glacial lakes. Our route takes us through a former glacial field as we tour through three different scenic mountain passes and along the most scenic road in Wales to view the summit of Mount Snowdon (distant views – subject to visibility) with one of the most scenic valleys in Wales.
Slate Quarries
The local culture of North Wales is witnessed with a visit to a slate quarry, where time permitting you can visit former homes of local quarrymen and even get to witness a slate splitting demonstration.
We stop briefly to photo the royal UNESCO medieval castle where Prince Charles was invested as the Prince of Wales.
Isle of Anglesey
No visit to Wales would be complete without visiting the town with the longest place name in Britain. Witness the beautiful panoramic views overlooking the spectacular Menai Straits and return to mainland via Thomas Telford’s spectacular suspension bridge.

Please note that certain attractions have restricted operating and opening times.

Tour Testimonial and Endorsement

“Wonderful Touring Day”

My husband and I had a wonderful day on tour with Boutique Tours. They picked us up at our guest house in Conwy and showed us the beauty of North Wales all in one day! The tour had so many interesting places and great photo stops. We went to the town with the longest name, Caernarfon Castle, Snowdonia National Park, a Slate mining town, Swallow Falls, Betws-y-Coed. The tour exceeded our expectations and we saw things we would have never found on our own!
