Llangollen Steam Train
Llangollen Railway is the only standard gauge heritage railway in North Wales and is located beside the historic Dee Bridge (built in 1345), in the centre of Llangollen town. The journey is a relaxing 10 miles travelling through the stunning Dee Valley to the lovely town of Corwen the crossroads of North Wales. This lovely journey travels on the section of the line which in its day went from Ruabon to Barmouth taking people to the seaside on holiday and transporting various goods including slate and chemicals. It is a true taste (and sound!) of yesteryear. The line follows the picturesque River Dee, classed as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), for its entire length, passing through some of the finest natural beauty North Wales has to offer.
Plas Newydd House
Set on the shores of the Menai Strait amidst breathtakingly beautiful scenery, this elegant house was redesigned by James Wyatt in the 18th century. The 1930s restyled interior is famous for its Rex Whistler association and contains his exquisite romantic mural and the largest exhibition of his works. A military museum contains relics from the First Marquess of Anglesey’s tenure, who commanded the cavalry at the Battle of Waterloo. There’s a fine spring garden and Australasian arboretum, with an understorey of shrubs and wild flowers, an Italianate-style summer terrace, and massed hydrangeas which give autumn colour. From the house and grounds, the views across the Menai Strait to the mountains of Snowdonia are simply stunning
