Visitor Information & Attractions in North Wales

Not only do we have great road cycling and mountain biking in North Wales, there are lots of other things to do from historic castles, buildings and gardens to market towns; canals, country parks and beaches; walking, running and fishing to high ropes, canoeing and climbing for the thrill seekers… you name it we have it. For ideas of places to visit;

  • Places to go in Denbighshire

    Where do we begin? You can fly somewhere over the rainbow in a hot air balloon. You can look for dragons in enchanted forests. Or shop for cheese at one of our food festivals. Whatever floats your boat – you’ll find it here.

  • Places to go in Conwy

    Conwy County is small, so you don’t have to go far to find great things to do and places to go. We’ve entertainment for both children and adults. Like the Welsh Mountain Zoo near Colwyn Bay or the pottery painting studio in Llandudno, so it’s perfect for family fun days out. And our romantic spots are ideal for couples. Visit the beautiful gardens at Bodnant, or the lonely wilds of Pensychnant Nature Reserve, where you can be completely alone.

  • Places to go in North Wales

    North Wales is small. But our list of attractions is big. You can visit the locals at Conwy RSPB Nature Reserve, or the not-so-locals at Pili Palas. Take a train to the top of Snowdon, or journey deep inside an electric mountain at Elidir. Tour one of 11 National Trust properties, Erddig comes complete with landscaped parkland (very handy for walking off that Welsh cream tea). And while you’re outdoors, you can bike on four wheels at Glasfryn Parc, trot on four legs at Tal y Foel Riding Centre, or try Wales’ first bouncing pillow at the Greenwood Forest Park. And that’s the trouble with North Wales, you see. What to do next?

  • Places to go in Snowdonia

    The biggest, boldest mountains in Wales and England are to be found here in the Snowdonia National Park. There’s also a long coastline of sandy beaches, spectacular cliffs and glorious estuaries, which along the LlÅ·n Peninsula is a protected ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’.

Along the way you will see hundreds of animals from many different species, including salamanders that never grow up, animals with lots of legs but no bones, frogs that think they’re skydivers and a moray eel disguised as a zebra.

    With regular talks, touchpools and feeding demonstrations, there is something for everyone.

  • Abseil uk

    We can give you a thrill you won`t forget – abseiling into the 120ft Devil`s Gorge. Your instructor will introduce you to the equipment and give you a short training lecture, then you abseil down the 75⁰ slope – The Slide. You now have an option. You can wimp out and repeat The Slide or go the full test and abseil the 120ft Overhang. This is real nerve racking stuff. A free hang (no body contact with the rock!!) abseil.

  • Cadw

    To find out more about heritage buildings in the Clwydian Range, Dee Valley, Conwy and surrounding area visit
    Cadw’s mission is to protect, conserve, and to promote an appreciation of the built heritage of Wales.

We recommend you bookmark these other websites and services that you may find useful whilst out and about in the North Wales area, from tourism to mountain biking information.


    The clue’s in the name. If you’re into mountain biking and you fancy doing it in Wales, this is the website for you. Spectacular all-weather singletrack trail centres, downhill and free ride hotspots, wildback country riding in some of Britain’s most spectacular scenery. it’s all here, plus a huge database of quality places to stay.


    We admit it: the Clywydian Range and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a bit of a mouthful. But there’s a lot to fit in. A dramatic chain of purple hills and limestone cliffs. Wild rugged mountains. Stunning medieval architecture. Two dynamic riverside towns. A World Heritage Site. And lots and lots of views.


    The North East of Wales is close enough to touch. It shares a border with Shropshire and Cheshire. It’s within an hour’s drive of Manchester and Liverpool and just 90 minutes from Birmingham. But this place where two cultures meet is delightfully different.


    It’s no mean feat to list all the things there are to do in Llandudno, Wales’ largest seaside resort. Never mind the World Heritage Site of Conwy Castle, the famous gardens at Bodnant and the legendary golf courses. But this website gives it a go. And there’s a video link so you can see it all for yourselves.


    Two famous seaside resorts with seven unbroken miles of sandy beach. And joined, as it happens, by National Cycle Route 5. So you could build a sandcastle in Prestatyn, cycle along the promenade and grab an ice cream in Rhyl.


    We know you like to spend all day on your bike. And when the trails are this good, who can blame you? But everybody needs a rest. So climb out of the saddle and try something else for a change. A romantic weekend break, for example, or one of our big events or festivals.

    • Scree Fact
      Not to boast, but we have one of the UK’s rarest trees hidden in the cracks of our scree cliff face. Sorbus Anglic – a type of Whitebeam – is found here, part of fewer than 250 specimens in existence.
