North Wales and the Lake District
Days 1-3: Conwy, North Wales
- Conwy Castle
- Bodnant Gardens
The Plan: The photos of the castle are stunning, and the Bodnant Gardens sound really interesting too. Since both Conwy and Llandudno sounded like great places to stay, though very different, we’re going to stay at both of them.
Days 4-6: Porthmadog, North Wales
The Plan: Originally it was all about the scenic train. But after reading about Portmeirion, that also because a must-do. Other than that we’ll do some walking or hiking in the area.
Days 7-11: Caernarfon, North Wales
The Plan: Another great castle to check out. We’re also using this as a base for Mt Snowdon, and taking a day trip to Beaumaris to see yet another castle.
Days 12-14: Llandudno, North Wales
The Plan: Checking out a classic British seaside resort, including a great Victorian pier. Also some hiking on the Great Orme, and depending on the weather, either sitting or walking on the beach. Or both!
Days 23-27: London, England
The Plan: Hit some of the things we missed the last time we were here. I don’t know if we’ll get to everything on that list in four days.
