Talyllyn Railway, Tywyn

'If you are unable to visit us, we will come to you’ is the message from Talyllyn Railway at Tywyn in Mid Wales, which is now providing live personal virtual tours for enthusiasts needing a ‘railway fix’. 

The railway, which celebrated its 70th birthday in 2022, offers a variety of tours including museum tours and an in depth look at Thomas the Tank Engine creator Rev Wilbert Awdry’s study, a general tour which takes in Pendre engine sheds for a glimpse behind the scenes or a tour dedicated to the railway’s locomotives.

North Wales

North Wales has long been one of our best-kept secrets. Recognised by Lonely Planet as one of the top destinations in the world, it's a gem, with pristine beaches, snow-capped mountains, frolicking wildlife, and oodles of culture.

The North Wales Way follows an old trading route for 75 miles along the northern coast of Wales, from Wrexham into Anglesey.

There is a trio of huge castles here to grab your attention: Castell Biwmares (Beaumaris Castle), Castell Caernarfon ( Caernarfon Castle) and the walled citadel of Conwy. Together with Harlech, this cluster of immense 13th century fortresses forms a UNESCO World Heritage site.
