North Wales Adventure with BusyBus – Full Day Tour

This is our award-winning Full-Day / 150-mile North Wales Adventure tour for departures from Chester. The tour has been carefully designed with your leisure in mind combining a great price for a full-day tour and superb destinations! This is sightseeing the way it is meant to be done! We use our 16-seater luxury minibuses always ensuring everyone has plenty of seat space and a full window view. All our vehicles are the latest models, carefully designed to a purpose-built sightseeing specification.

Your tour is fully escorted and narrated with a jolly driver and knowledgeable escort who, invariably, will become more of a friend than a tour guide! Every passenger receives special attention and is encouraged to participate in the day as much as possible to ensure that you have a wonderful time with us.

Itinerary

LLandudno and St Tudno’s Church

Arriving at Llandudno we’ll ascent the steep Great Orme and marvel at the views (on a clear day we’ll even see the Isle Of Man!) and visit the 1,100 year old hidden chapel of St. Tudno with its Blue Window and Stigmata. A stroll down the original wooden pier far out to sea is a must you can buy those Welsh souvenirs!

Conwy

Next is the walled town of Conwy, constructed by the English monarch Edward I between 1283 and 1289 as one of the key fortresses in his ‘iron ring’ of castles to contain the Welsh, it was built to prompt such a humbling reaction with its fabulous wall circuit of over 3/4 mile long and guarded by no less than 22 towers. It is renowned as one of the finest examples in the World.

Conwy Castle

Conwy Castle is a gritty, dark-stoned fortress built by James of St. George in partnership with the french Richard The Engineer. This castle is the “real thing” resembling exactly what children form from buckets of sand on the beach. It has the rare ability to evoke an authentic medieval atmosphere. The first time that you catch sight of the castle you will know you are in the presence of a historic site which still casts a powerful spell. When you go inside (optional – entrance charge applicable ~£9.50)…well…need I even comment?

Ogwen Valley – Snowdonia

Now, brace yourselves for what BusyBus has become known for (and, we modestly add, have won National awards for) the North Wales Adventure element of the tour. In to Snowdonia National Park using carefully selected routes and taking you well and truly off the beaten track to viewpoints of wonder! You’ll feel like you own Snowdonia in the tranquility and ambiance (and adventure) we’ve prepared!

Betws-y-Coed

No trip to North Wales would be complete without a stop at the “capital”, Betws-Y-Coed  (prayer-house in the woods). Interestingly, whilst right in the centre of Snowdonia National Park, an exclusion boundary has allowed this fairy-tale town to flourish into the centre of outdoor tourism in Wales. With it’s many shops, cafes, pubs and locals, it simply can’t fail to impress!

LLangollen

We will pass through Llangollen, the starting station for the famous and still fully-functional steam railway along with many other “claims to fame”.

Pontcysyllte Aqueduct

You get a unique chance to experience the Pontcysyllte Canal Aqueduct, built by Sir Thomas Telford in 1795 and still taking canal barges across the valley high above the ground.
