Today, you will depart Liverpool and enter Wales and Snowdonia, a region in north Wales and a national park of 823 square miles in area. You will stop at Conwy, which is a walled market town and a popular tourist destination on the north Wales coast. It is a place in Wales where the Welsh language can still be heard in widespread, casual and official usage.
Day 4 : Aberstywyth
While traveling through Snowdonia, you will stop at Aberstywyth. Aberystwyth is a major tourist centre and a cultural link between North Wales and South Wales. Constitution Hill is scaled by the Aberystwyth Cliff Railway giving access to fine views and other attractions at the top, while much of the finest scenery in Mid Wales lies within easy reach of the town. This includes the wilderness of the Cambrian Mountains, whose valleys contain forests and meadows which have changed little in centuries. A convenient way of reaching the interior is by the preserved narrow gauge Vale of Rheidol Railway.
Although the town is relatively modern, it contains a number of historic buildings, including the remains of the castle and the Old College of Aberystwyth University nearby. The Old College was originally built and opened in 1865 as a hotel but, due to the bankruptcy of the owner, the shell of the building was sold to the university in 1867.
