Porthmadog — 7 nights

Porthmadog, known locally as "Port", and since 1974, rendered into Welsh from its former Anglicised form, Portmadoc, is a small coastal town and community in the Eifionydd area of Gwynedd, in Wales. You've added Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways, Snowdon Mountain Railway, The Great Orme Tramway, and other attractions to your itinerary. Attractions like Harlech Castle and The Cob make great kid-friendly stops. When in Porthmadog, make a side trip to see The Mawddach Trail in Dolgellau, approximately Dolgellau away. Next up on the itinerary: whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, stroll through Harlech Beach, and don't miss a visit to Portmeirion Village.

Passionate about being Welsh, residents of North Wales fiercely preserve their language, music, and history. The region’s dramatic landscapes, which notably include the highest peaks in Wales and England, attract tourism from hikers, cyclists, and adventure-seekers of every description. Your trip may also include a ride on some of the country’s most scenic heritage railways here. Despite its relatively small size, North Wales has many historical attractions to fill your travel itinerary. It is home to two World Heritage sites, which include a series of well-preserved Edwardian castles dating back to the 12th and 13th centuries. The Welsh spirit is strong here and most residents use their mother tongue, but don’t be afraid to ask for directions: Everyone also speaks fluent English and will be more than happy to converse in it.
