National Geographic Traveller (UK)
Getting there and around
Regular trains hug the length of Wales’s north coast from Manchester, Birmingham or Crewe, with major stops including Llandudno, Bangor and Holyhead. Frequent buses also serve the same stretch. However, exploring by car is easiest, allowing access to Snowdonia’s peaks and Anglesey’s farthest flung beaches. Or walk, using the spectacular 75-mile North Wales Way, which runs along the entire North coat of Wales, into Anglesey.
Where to stay
In the pretty seaside resort of Beaumaris, Anglesey, The Bull sits just minutes from the town’s main attractions, including its Victorian pier and UNESCO World Heritage-listed castle. A characterful, 400-year-old coaching house, The Bull offers good-sized rooms and excellent food with a Welsh accent. Double rooms from £125. bullsheadinn.co.uk
