Early Spring Bloom - Isle of Anglesey and Snowdonia
Anglesey, lying off the tip of the North Wales’ mainland is reached by crossing the Menai Strait. It has a gentle landscape of snug villages, a coastline embracing tall cliffs, sandy coves and fine beaches. Beaumaris, a major yatching centre, is a mix of small narrow streets, crowded around a massive but unfinished 13th century castle. Gracious Regency and Georgian houses are a reminder of days gone by when the town was home to Anglesey gentry.
Day 1 Departure: 0800-0900 hrs. Travel to North Wales, making a comfort stop en-route at Bridgemere Garden Village. Lunch stop at Chester (cost not included).
