Places to Visit
A car is really a necessity to explore North Wales, however there is a coastal train running from Crewe to Holyhead very often pulled by a steam engine during the summer months. A local coach company runs many trips around North Wales and Cheshire for people who do not wish to explore by car. Your host will only be too pleased to advise you on the vast number of places to visit, a good selection of brochures is available to you to look through in the lounge while you relax in the evening. There are videos to watch, games and snooker table available for your pleasure in the lounge.
