The most beautiful places in North Wales

Snowdonia National Park (2)

What Big 7 Travel said: "Nothing spells epic Welsh countryside like Snowdonia National Park.

"Prepare to be completely taken by the natural beauty that makes up this sprawling mountainous region in North Wales.

"Whether you wander the mighty Snowdon mountain for which the park is named or brush up on Welsh history at one of the many castles; it won’t be hard to see why the area is one of the most beautiful places in the UK."

Conwy Castle (14)

Big 7 Travel said: "As one of the UK’s most impressive examples of medieval architecture and with a fascinating history, Conwy Castle is a wonder.

"It was built by King Edward I in order to control and conquer North Wales in the 13th century, and its many towers certainly give off an imposing essence.

"The colossal castle stands above the river, against a backdrop of rolling hills, combining medieval military architecture with a beautiful bucolic setting.

"Head to the highest tower for panoramic views across the mountains and out to the sea."

Dolgellau, Snowdonia National Park (45)

Big 7 Travel said: "Dolgellau is not yet hot on the tourist trail when it comes to Snowdonia stays, but its quiet charm is what makes it one of the most beautiful places in the UK.

"It’s ideally positioned on the foothills of the mighty Cadair Idris, lying beside the River Wnion.

"Take pleasant strolls around the village of stone brick cottages, hike the ridiculously stunning Precipice Walk, cycle along the Mawddach Trail, visit the historical Cymer Abbey, and enjoy a well-deserved pint in one of the nicest pubs in Snowdonia, the George III."
