walesAre you coming to this historic area for the sunny season and want to track down some of the landmarks that make it so great?

It’s a hard decision to pick just a few to recommend but decided to compile 5 of the best attractions in North Wales for your interest below.

So, in no particular order, here are five must-sees in our beautiful region:

Welsh Mountain Zoo

Situated in Colwyn Bay, this long-running zoo has been one of the premier destinations for family fun throughout the whole of Wales for many years and is filled with many exotic animals and exciting animals to keep you busy during your visit.

Whether you’re with the kids or going solo, you will no doubt have a fantastic day out exploring all that the Welsh Mountain Zoo has to offer.

The Great Orme

Looming over the historic town of Llandudno is the aptly named Great Orme: a real hotspot for tourists and locals alike.

You can reach the summit either by foot (if you’re up to it!) or by a brilliant cable car service that will provide you with a stunning view of the horizon and one that you’ll be remiss to forget in a hurry. Bring along a picnic on a summer’s day and enjoy a simplistic but enthralling time.


Located just a short drive away from Porthmadog near the Snowdonia National Park, Portmeirion is an intriguing and delightful prospect for a day out thanks to its unusual structure and design.

Once the location for the production of the cult television series, The Prisoner, this Italian-styled village has become a hub for the arts in modern times with the thriving Festival No.6 only becoming bigger and better with each passing year.

Bodnant Garden

Anyone who’s stepped foot on the grounds of Bodnant Garden will be able to vouch that it’s hard to beat in terms of tranquillity, one of the many reasons why it’s on our list.

Wonderfully maintained and restored over the years, the beauty of Bodnant means it’s always a popular destination for travellers. The olde style present throughout the 80 acres helps it into our top five ahead of other more contemporary attractions.


Was there any doubt that this wouldn’t make it onto our list?

The biggest mountain in the UK is also one of the biggest lures for hiking enthusiasts and spectators and it has a very well trampled path because of this. You can’t top reaching its summit and peering out upon the Snowdonian landscape but be sure to take the necessary precautions before you set off!
