On Tuesday, 23 June, we'll be traveling from Ruthin to Llandudno by car. We'll be checking out the nature scenes along the way, but mostly we'll be "discovering" some amazing castles. We're are used to seeing a lot in a day when we travel . . . don't need to stop and rest. I got the driving times from Google maps. Any suggestions?
9:30 Drive to Betws-y-Coed (BET-oos-uh-coyd) 50 min. Follow signs for "i" for for parking. Spend 30 min in town. Drive west on A-5 2 miles toward Beddgelert or Llanberis for parking for Swallow Falls. £1.50. 5-minute walk from parking lot to falls.
11:30 Drive to Caernarfon (kah-NAR-von). Go to castle to catch the 12:00 tour (50 min on the hour, £6)
13:00 Drive to Beaumaris. 30 min. Castle. £ 4.50
14:00 Drive to Penrhyn Castle. 20 min. Nat. Trust.
15:00 Drive to Conwy. 25 min. Conwy Castle £5.75. Closes 17:00
Spend 1 hour.
16:00-??? Conwy. Take RS walk around town, perhaps eat dinner.
Drive to Llandudno, 15 min.
Walk around the bay. Inquire about a choir practice/performance.
The next morning we drive to Liverpool. Any recommendations for one or two stops along the way?
Looking forward to some sage advice,
