Enjoy a delightful Christmas escape in beautiful Wales. Discover the panorama of the countryside on three fantastic rail journeys, and greet the festive season in style.
Arrive at your hotel today, the 3* Wild Pheasant Hotel & Spa in Llangollen. Situated in beautifully scenic Northern Wales, Llangollen is delightfully and typically Welsh, and therefore the perfect place to experience the beauty of Wales at Christmas. Here, you meet your Tour Manager, and settle in for your first meal together at the hotel.
Enjoy your first rail journey toda, on board the delightful Llangollen Railway from Llangollen to Carog and back. Whilst on board, enjoy the stunning passing scenery whilst partaking in a festive mince pie. Back in Llangollen, walk to the wharf, for your next adventure on a boat tour that takes you over the oldest aqueduct in Great Britain, the Pontcysyllte Viaduct.
Today is Christmas Day, and you are at leisure to enjoy the festivities. After a free morning, where you might choose to take a wander around Llangollen, taking in the lovely sights, like St Collen's Parish Church, or even a gentle stroll along the banks of the River Dee, enjoy a fabulous Christmas lunch at the hotel, including some scrumptious Christmas cake. This afternoon is also at leisure, ahead of a light buffet supper.
Enjoy Boxing Day with a journey from Blaneau Ffestiniog to Porthmadog on board the Ffestiniog Steam Railway this morning. On arrival into Porthmadog, you have some time to explore this tiny but picturesque port town, before retuning to the hotel for dinner.
The adventure continues into your final day, with a morning excursion on the Welsh Highland Railway. Running between Dinas and Beddgelert, this line cuts through the beautiful Gwydir Forest Park, and showcases some of Wales' most breathtaking scenery. After, return to the hotel, where you are then free to depart at your leisure.
On many of our UK & Ireland tours, you may check in at the first hotel on your itinerary anytime after 14:00; your Tour Manager will be available between 16:00 and 18:00. However, if you are arriving later, you can meet your Tour Manager before dinner from 19:00.
