ABOUT THE TOUR – Whether you’re new to the area or on holiday, our Heritage Sightseeing Tour offers you the greatest opportunity to see the best of Llandudno, Rhos-on-Sea and Deganwy. You'll discover historic gems all expertly unearthed by our resident tour guide as well as stunning scenic views throughout the journey.
Departing from Llandudno Pier entrance (Prince Edward Square), our tour whisks you along the Llandudno Promenade towards the little Orme as we venture into Penrhyn Bay and Rhos-on-Sea, a beautifully charming seaside town. Upon arriving at Rhos, we'll stop off at one of Britain's smallest churches, the Chapel of Saint Trillo, which in its original structure would have dated back to the 6th century and provides the perfect place for some scenic shots.
After visiting the chapel, the tour will continue through into rural Glanwydden and into upmarket Deganwy for more spectacular views this time of the Snowdonia Mountain Range, Conwy & Deganwy Marina’s and of course Conwy Castle itself!
If that's not enough, you’ll enjoy all this from the comfort and quirkiness of our beloved and faithfully restored 1962 ex-London AEC Routemaster bus.
