Inspiration Wednesday – Snowdonia
Our #InspirationWednesday today is Snowdonia, a region in north Wales and a national park. Home to the highest mountain in Wales, it’s no surprise that this area is popular for those in favour of outdoor pursuits.
With a ‘Special Area of Conservation’ coastline, Snowdonia has some of the most beautiful beaches in the UK, including the popular Black Rock Sands. There’s loads to do in this region – from water sports, golf, National Trust properties or taking a trip on the traditional railways. There are also loads of events in the local calendar, from sporting or music events to family or even a ‘sci-fi’ festival!
And if the weather takes a turn for the worst, you can have a guided tour of one of the mines, go to King Arthur’s Labyrinth, visit the Trefriw Woollen Mills or have an Underground Tour at Conwy Falls.
