On the 24th (Wed), don't miss a visit to Galeri Betws-y-Coed, then take an in-depth tour of National Slate Museum, and then take in the dramatic scenery at Swallow Falls. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: make a trip to Betws-y-Coed Railway Station, then identify plant and animal life at Zip World Fforest, then whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, and finally admire the striking features of Ty Mawr Wybrnant.

Plan my Betws-y-Coed trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

London to Betws-y-Coed is an approximately 4-hour car ride. You can also take a train; or do a combination of flight and train. Expect a daytime high around 17°C in October, and nighttime lows around 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Thu) early enough to drive to Dolgellau.

Zipline · Mountains · Waterfalls
Unlike national parks in other countries, is made up of both public and private lands, serving as a permanent home to over 26,000 people. This is the largest national park in Wales, boasting the highest mountain in England and Wales. Dotted by numerous picturesque villages, the park is steeped in local history and culture. One of the wettest parts of the British Isles, the park shelters a diverse plant and animal life, with many areas protected by local and European conservation laws. The area includes over 2,300 km (1,500 mi) of public footpaths, with numerous secluded mountain walks that are relatively empty of hikers and offer peaceful views of the surrounding landscape.
