Your Tour Options In Wales
Chester To Caernarfon
Caernarfon To Stratford
These two touring routes will take you to the most dramatic areas in Wales . . . the northern coast with its great castles, and the 800 sq miles of Snowdonia National Park, draped in forests, towered above by 3500ft high mountains hewn from the primordial rock, deep cut by rollicking rills and rivers.
Between Chester and Caernarfon the interest is mainly historical – the “Iron Ring”, a line of castles built by Edward I. Magnificent buildings that capture all the magic of those mediaeval days when one can all but see knights and damsels, magicians and jesters, kings and queens.
Their purpose, however, was much darker. They were strictly royal business, protecting the kingdom from rabble-rousing revolutionaries.
On the run from Caernarfon to Stratford, however, the mood lightens. You will pass through some of the most beautiful, the most dramatic scenery in all of Britain.
Then as you cross back into England the mood changes yet again. You’ll catch echoes of the first days of the Industrial Revolution, perhaps explore some great English fortifications before ending your journey in Stratford-upon-Avon, home of England’s greatest playwright, William Shakespeare whose plays, 500 years later, still fill houses and thrill audiences around the world.
