North Wales is a great tourist destination thanks to its stunning countryside and beaches, including those on the Llyn Peninsula. With mountains and valleys surrounding these areas, there are plenty of things to see and do and places to stay, including a multitude of North Wales hotels that will help you get the most out of your surroundings.
There are a number of popular towns in North Wales that attract visitors from both near and far. One such town is Abersoch, a large village situated on the Llyn Peninsula that is an extremely popular seaside resort. Anglesey is a beautiful island which is situated just off the Northern coast of Wales and is joined to the mainland by two bridges. Another fantastic place to visit in North Wales is Llandudno, which is situated in the County of Conwy and benefits from two miles of sweeping coastline along the Llandudno bay and North Shore.
Best of North Wales breaks for...
- Active types: Anglesey plays host to an annual walking festival, which sees visitors travel from miles around to take part. Abersoch specialises in watersports such as windsurfing and jet skiing and has established itself over the years as Britain's most important sailing centre. The influx of visitors to the annual Wakestock wakeboarding event means that Abersoch hotels can get quite busy at certain points in the year so booking as far in advance as possible is recommended.
- Wildlife: You can take a boat out of the bay at Abersoch to see the seals, dolphins and puffins that visit Abersoch every year. The Welsh Mountain Zoo in Llandudno is a great family day out, where you will get to see a variety of animals being cared for in habitats that are very similar to their natural ones.
- Historical sites: Llandudno has a Victorian promenade and pier, which was built in 1878 and is now classed as a Grade II listed building, as well as a number of architecturally stunning buildings that are now used as hotels in Llandudno. There are also plenty of historic sites that reflect the heritage of Llandudno, such as the medieval castle and prehistoric copper mines. As Anglesey has a Roman history dating back hundreds of years, there are plenty of galleries and museums to visit that bring the past to life.
- Families: The Pottery Painting Studio is a great place to visit to keep the children amused if the weather isn't good. Anglesey's rocky coves are popular with youngsters interested in the small marine life that lives there.
No matter which part of North Wales you choose to stay in, from Abersoch and Angelsey to Llandudno and the Llyn Peninsula, you will find plenty of hotels in North Wales to suit your taste and budget.
