Overview

Accommodation is provided by Plas Dinas Country House or Bodysgallen Hall & Spa, both attractions in their own right. Your tour will include an introduction to Edward I’s campaign against the native Welsh Prince Llywelyn ap Gruffudd, giving you a deep unique insight into Wales' UNESCO world heritage listed castles and setting the stage for your experience-break.

Day 1
You will travel along the North Wales coast to Rhuddlan castle to see the remarkable and little-known gem which once played a key role in Edward's military success. Continue on to Conwy Castle and the World famous Caernarfon Castle, with its renowned hexagonal towers modelled on those at Constantinople, the Castle has overseen the investiture of the heir to the British throne for over 800 years.

Dinner will be served at your hotel.

Day 2
Following a hearty Welsh breakfast you will visit the nearby Llyn peninsula where the town of Criccieth is overlooked by its namesake castle on the promontory hill. This part of Wales is home to many ancient hill-forts heading back thousands of years but Criccieth offers a rare glimpse to the Welsh prince’s response to English incursions in their borders. From here you head to Harlech Castle, the site of many famous battles between the native Welsh and the powerful English armies. After lunch travel north through the beautiful scenery of Snowdonia to cross into the mysterious Island of Anglesey, spiritual home of the Druids in ancient times but more recently the setting for the near-perfect fortress of Beaumaris; a castle so intricate that its costly construction nearly bankrupted England.

Dinner will be served at your hotel.
