Hotels in North Wales
North Wales is the most enchanting and naturally beautiful region of Wales. It contains two of the three UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the country as well as three of Wales' five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Add to this Snowdonia National Park and you can see why adventurous holidaymakers flock to the region.
UNESCO World Heritage
North Wales is not just about stunning natural beauty, it is also famous for its architectural splendour which includes two UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal was completed in 1805 and is the longest and highest aqueduct in the UK.
The aqueduct carries water and barges on the Llangollen Canal, the route of which makes for an incredibly lovely walk. Starting in Hurleston in the English county of Cheshire follow the canal to its conclusion in Llangollen in Wales. If you get tired, hitch a ride on one of the many barges that you will see drifting past.
North Wales' other UNESCO-designated treasures are the collective Castles and Town Walls of King Edward in Gwynedd. These magnificent fortifications were built by the English king, Edward I, after he invaded the region in 1282. The majesty and architectural symmetry of the castles are startling, and they are definitely a must-see.
With so much to see and do in North Wales, it is hard to fit it all in. One place you should definitely visit though, is the Isle of Anglesey. The island has some of the most uniquely attractive and varied landscapes in the whole of the UK and is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Most of Anglesey's protected areas are on its 125-miles of coastline and the Anglesey Coastal Path, which follows a gentle route, is the best place to see it all. Make sure you stop off at Llanddwyn Island. The island becomes a peninsula at low-tide and is home to one of the finest beaches in Europe.
Anglesey, being an island, has some of the best seafood restaurants in the whole of Wales. If you're feeling peckish, Dylan's, which overlooks the awesome Menai Suspension Bridge, has quality fish, and very good pizza, in a family-friendly environment.
Snowdonia National Park was one of Britain's first national parks and is situated in the heart of North Wales. The park is dominated by Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, and is full of gorgeous scenery, flora and fauna.
If you are into hiking or climbing, you must attempt the Snowdon Group of mountains while you are here. The group includes Snowdon, as well as Crib Y Ddysgl and Crib Goch and offers a rewarding, but not too challenging, climb.
Those who prefer to admire the scenery from a moving vehicle, or who have young kids, might prefer to take the Snowdon Mountain Railway. This spectacular 4-mile line ascends 3,500 feet up the mountain and has some breathtaking views along the way.
With so much on offer in this fantastic part of the world, North Wales hotels are surely the only place you should be looking at for your holiday.
