Castles of Wales Day Trip

After visiting the castle we will have free time for lunch in Caernarfon town. Next it’s a visit to Llanberis and the scenic Welsh Castle of Dolbadarn – set on Llyn Padarn Lake at the base of the Snowdonian mountain range. A great beauty spot in the UK!

“Excellent opportunity” *****
I traveled with the Liverpool Daytripper twice to see the castles of Wales. The trips are punctual and organized and you can make the most of the time to know the most difficult and longest places to reach by train. Worth it!
