Silversea Luxury Cruises À Holyhead

Once a major defence point against Irish invaders Holyhead now extends the hand of friendship across the Irish Sea and is a major ferry port connecting the two countries. Discover a scenic and spectacular place whatever the weather – whether the sun’s bouncing off the blotched blue sea or the waves are swelling moodily as rain thrashes down. View more

Set on the windswept coast of North Wales South Stack Lighthouse is a stunningly perched bright white lighthouse which has been casting its gaze out across the water for more than 200 years. A rugged picturesque site to explore you can wander out across the small aluminium bridge to reach the island where it rises. Be warned there’s a steep climb down 400 steps and then a spiral of another 100 up once you’re inside but if you’re up to the physical demands the views are magnificent from the beacon that has guarded these waters for so long. Ellin's Tower also stands over the crumbling cliffs nearby and this small castellated hideout is adorned with binoculars - perfect for getting a closer look at the crowds of nesting seabirds and puffins who cling to the coastline’s stark cliffs. In Holyhead itself enthusiastic volunteers will relay the region’s seafaring history to you at the compact Maritime Museum or you can explore Breakwater Country Park - another coastal hiking spot that sits below the gentle Holyhead Mountain. Enjoy views of the Irish Sea stretching as far as the Skerries seven miles out to sea and as far as Ireland on clear days.

Narrow Gauge Railway & Welsh Countryside

Experience the splendid natural beauty of Wales in a unique new way during this half-day excursion by vintage railway, and a visit to the Welsh countryside.


Scenic Drive and Narrow Gauge Railway Ride

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 1.5-hour drive to a Victorian Railway Station on the historic Welsh Highland route. En route, travel across the isle of Anglesey and over Britannia Bridge (look along the Menai Strait to see the Menai Suspension Bridge) to the mainland, and drive through the Welsh Countryside to arrive at the station and meet your train. Upon arrival, board a restored narrow gauge steam railway for a panoramic ride through wide open spaces and narrow valleys of the stunning Snowdonia National Park, renowned for its vast areas of natural beauty and unique scenery.


Welsh Countryside

After experiencing spectacular Snowdonia, arrive at Beddgelert, set amidst some of the most beautiful scenery in Wales. The village has won the 'Britain in Bloom' and 'Wales in Bloom' competitions on many occasions. A stop is made for an opportunity to explore this picturesque village, which is situated at the confluence of the rivers Afon Colwyn and Afon Glaslyn. Crossed by a picturesque, ivy-covered stone bridge, the river runs through the village as it flows down from the dramatic Aberglaslyn Pass. You may opt to take a stroll to the field by the river for a visit to the grave of Gelert, Prince Llywelyn's faithful hound, and learn of its tragic end. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately one-hour drive back to the pier via Snowdonia National Park.
