Combine a break in North Wales with Ireland's iconic Causeway Coastal Route.

It also boasts one of the top 5 views in the world. From its beaches through to its mountain ranges North Wales is bursting with natural drama and the nation’s history is told through its ancient monuments and museums.
North Wales is Welsh through and through. This is a region that is passionate about language, music and history, with magnificent castles, railways and festivals offering something for everyone visiting North Wales. 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.
The Causeway Coastal Route transports you along a stunning coastline, past spectacular scenery, windswept cliffs and unspoilt beaches, a coastline sprinkled with historic castles, churches and forts as well as world class attractions like the UNESCO World heritage site at the Giants Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Torr Head, Dark Hedges and the famous Bushmills Distillery. This tour is a journey of exploration where imagination meets reality and where every village, town, castle and rocky shore are waiting to be discovered.
Belfast is a rising star, emerging from years of political unease to take its place among the UK’s must-see destinations.
