North Wales &
Enjoy a wonderful 4 day, 3 night JEC tour to North Wales. Great mountain ranges, lush valleys and ancient castles are just some of the reasons why Wales was voted the 'best place' in the world to visit in 2014. From its beaches through to its mountain ranges Wales is bursting with natural drama. The nation’s history is told through its ancient monuments and museums.
North Wales is a region that is passionate about language, music and history, with magnificent castles, railways and festivals offering something for everyone. Snowdonia, the mountainous heart of southern Britain, is one of the UK’s most popular destinations, however, there’s more to this region than craters and crags. It’s blessed with some of the most beautiful coastal scenery in Wales on the Llŷn Peninsula and Cambrian Coastline, plus its reputation for fine dining using Welsh meat, fish and cheese is growing all the time. The Victorians and Edwardians loved to visit Llandudno and graced it with some of the most elegant seaside architecture in Britain. You can delve further into the past at the 4000-year-old copper mine or the medieval castle at Conwy. In the hills and valleys of the Borderlands, there are plenty more views, plus fantastic local food and a buzzing arts scene.
Designed by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis in 1925, Portmerion was built in imitation of a rustic Italian village, to demonstrate how a naturally beautiful place could be developed without spoiling it. Sitting at the feet of Snowdonia it makes for a charming dislocation that is truly unique. Portmeirion's place in popular culture has been set in stone as a result. The ironic sense nostalgia and pastiche that emanates from Portmeirion has been a key element of its architectural legacy.
