Castles, mountains and breathtaking scenery only 90 minutes by coach from Liverpool. We’ve got some great ideas and days out for groups. But don’t take our word for it, check out our Five star Trip Advisor reviews confirming our expertise in Liverpool Group Travel.
Ideas Groups Tour of Liverpool World Heritage Site
Liverpool was inscribed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2004 and is a perfect destination for a holiday, group travel or citybreak with day excursions to explore North West England and North Wales. Groups typically return each evening to enjoy Liverpool’s vibrant city centre. This tour is one of our favourite ideas for groups and is why we are considered the best at Liverpool Group Travel.
Your day starts with a short guided city tour of this vibrant cultural city which was European Capital of Culture in 2008. Your local tour guide with ideas & days out for groups will explain the rest of your day and will make sure everything is a really personal experience as your group travel to each exciting destination!
River in the Sky
Next you'll travel 45 minutes by coach to our second World Heritage Site; Pontcysylite Aqueduct. We take an awesome short walk across the canal towpath on “River in the Sky” created by Thomas Telford in the early 19th Century.
Heart of Snowdonia
We then rejoin the coach and take a scenic drive as we continue to Betws-y-Coed where there are lots of craft shops and cafes for you to purchase your morning tea or coffee or why not try a Welsh Drop Scone or traditional cake called Bara Brith. Betws-y-coed is beautifully situated at the junction of three rivers and close to the Swallow Falls and was largely developed in the Victorian Era. Followed by a drive through stunning and relaxing scenery is just one example of our ideas & days out for groups.
We then rejoin the coach to take a route past the Ugli House! On one of the most spectacular mountain passes in the UK to the foot of Mount Snowdon, this area is steeped in folklore with the “Legend of Gelert”, Welsh Dragons, Edmund Hilary and fierce battles. Your group travel guide will bring your journey to life explaining the welsh language and playing music on the coach by welsh singers such as Tom Jones or a magnificent Welsh Male Voice Choir.
Edwardian Castles - excellent ideas for groups
You’ll stop for a short walk at a stunning location in the heart of the mountains and then we take you to the medieval town of Conwy for 2 hours where you can perhaps walk the ancient walls or visit the magnificent castle built in 1283 by King Edward I as part of a much wider ring of castles during his conquest of Wales. Conway is our third World Heritage Site & has a wonderful waterfront where you will find fishing boats and the smallest house in Britain! Traditional pubs where you can also buy wonderful fish and chips are scattered around the town. The hidden gem in Conwy is the Elizabethan House called Plas Mawr and its possible to buy a combination ticket to visit the house and the castle another one of our ideas group tours for Liverpool group travel.
All guests will be given a free map of your ideas for groups tour and a bottle of water on the coach.
