Betws-y-Coed
Betws-y-Coed - Betws-y-Coed is a charming old town on the River Conwy, located in a stunning natural setting. You could spend a morning running back and forth over numerous old stone or iron bridges in town. There are lovely walks along the River Conwy, to Fairy Glen and the Beaver Bridge or around Gwydir Forest. If you're more industrially-minded, visit the Motor Museum with rare cars such as Bugattis, Aston Martins (James Bond's favorite) and a child's racing car.
Trefriw - In Trefriw (near Llanrwst) tour the Trefriw Woolen Mill to see the traditional process of carding, spinning, dying, and weaving wool into finished clothing. Also visit the Trefriw Wells Roman Spa (the Romans were the first to test the waters), Cyclopean Bath house and Victorian Pump Room - try the waters yourself.
Capel Garmon - Two miles away in the village of Capel Garmon is a Neolithic burial chamber (croimlech), big hunks of stone sunk into the ground, lasting 5,000 years.
Dolwyddelan Castle - Down the valley from Betws-y-Coed, Dolwyddelan Castle is a solitary structure, standing guard over the Vale of Conwy since the 13th century. This castle was built by the famous Llewelyn the Great, a Welsh prince (the original Prince of Wales). Two towers in the mist, and great views of the valley from the ridge.
