Portmeirion Coach Trip Itinerary

Day One :

Coach travel to Rhyl

Leaving your coach pick up early this morning we'll head to North Wales. We should arrive in Rhyl in plenty of time for you to unpack and relax before dinner.


Day Two :

Optional Welsh Highland Railway tour

Today we head to the popular resort of Llandudno, where you'll have plenty of free time to enjoy the beaches, elegant promenades and stylish shops. Alternatively, join our optional full-day excursion and see the spectacular scenery of Llanberis Pass, the pretty village of Betws-y-Coed and the delightful lakeside resort of Llanberis itself. 

For many, the excursion's highlight will be a ride on the Welsh Highland Railway. Closed in the 1930s, the line has been under restoration since 1997, and it is now possible to travel the 12 breathtaking miles from Caernarfon to Rhyd-Ddu at the foot of Snowdon.

Day Three :

Included Portmeirion excursion

Following breakfast, we'll begin a day of memorable rail journeys. The Conwy Valley Line, one of Britain's most beautiful railways, takes us through heather-clad moors and mountains to Blaenau Ffestiniog. Here we'll transfer to the Ffestiniog Railway for the twisting descent through Snowdonia National Park to Porthmadog.

After lunch, we'll continue to Portmeirion, featured in the popular 1960s TV series 'The Prisoner'. Here, the ornate, colour-washed buildings and Mediterranean Piazza are surrounded by beautiful sub-tropical woodland gardens.

Day Four  :

Coach travel home

We take our leave of North Wales today, and head for home. Depending on the traffic and distance to be travelled, we should be back at your original coach pick-up point by early-to-mid evening.

Coach seating arrangements

Your Tour Manager will have allocated seats for you on the main coach in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible, and will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach.)

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.
