Welsh Spring Break

Welsh Spring Break

3* Beaufort Park Hotel: Chester, Llangollen Steam Train, Chirk Castle, Llandudno & British Ironwork Centre

The Beaufort Park Hotel is an independently run 3-star AA hotel located just a short drive from the historic market town of Mold set in the attractive North Wales countryside.


Monday 16 March

We depart the local area and make a stop for lunch before arriving at Beaufort Park ready to settle in before dinner. 


Tuesday 17 March

After breakfast we head to the historic city of Chester, which has the most complete city walls and largest Roman Amphitheatre in Britain, plus a 1,000 year old cathedral and 700 year old unique shopping rows. 


Wednesday 18 March

Today we take a step back in time to the days of steam and head out on the Llangollen Railway.  The railway is located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and this is evident as the train gently meanders through the Dee Valley.  The views from the carriages are breath-taking and constantly changing from season to season, you may well see the first spring lambs and the ever changing colours of the beautiful vista. This afternoon we visit Chirk Castle (NT).  With over 700 years of history, and as the last castle from this period still lived in today, Chirk Castle's many occupants have left behind lavish interiors and a beautiful and eclectic collection. The state rooms include a 17th-century Long Gallery, grand 18th-century saloon with rich tapestries, servants' hall, and the restored East Range, containing the library and 1920s style Bow Room showing off Chirk Castle’s connections to high society.


Thursday 19 March

Today, we enjoy a lovely drive via Colwyn Bay to the ‘Queen of Welsh’ resorts, Llandudno, with its wonderful beaches and lovely wide promenade.  Llandudno is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing day, with its beautiful Victorian architecture and Edwardian elegance, pier and excellent selection of high street stores and attractions. We head back via the Snowdonia National Park, taking in the panoramic views of Llanberis and through the pretty village of Betws-y-Coed.


Friday 20 March

We depart Beaufort Park with a morning visit to the British Ironwork Centre & Shropshire Sculpture Park, the biggest display of decorative metalwork in the UK, and arrive back home late afternoon.
