I have no idea of driving times, but I am arriving at Heathrow at 9am on a Thursday and would like to see a bit of Wales in the two days I have free at the beginning of a trip. I need to be in Stansted by 4pm on Saturday. I would love to get to Snowdonia and stay in that area. I love driving, and wonder if it is feasible to drive Thursday up to the park, stay two nights and then drive to Stansted. If it is feasible, is the coastal or inland route the more scenic? I love both mountains and sea, so I am torn.
If I am crazy to attempt this, can anyone recommend another itinerary that lets me see scenic Wales? Castles are great, but natural beauty is more important. Btw, this will be at the very end of September...
