Just an hour from Manchester and less than 3 from London!
We might have a language, culture and landscape quite unlike anywhere else in the UK, but we’re surprisingly easy to get to. North Wales is less than 3 hours by Virgin Train from London Euston, and an advance ticket to Wrexham costs from as little as £9.00. You can be unpacking the car within a couple of hours of leaving Birmingham, Liverpool or Manchester and their respective airports. So, in not much longer than it takes to look through this website, you could be taking advantage of all the great things there are to do in North Wales.
Once you’ve arrived in North Wales, get yourself a Freedom of Wales Flexi Pass. It’s your ticket to explore every corner of North Wales through unlimited access to all our mainline train services and almost every bus service. What’s more, a Flexi Pass has other benefits including discounted admission to lots of lovely attractions and a Travel Guide to help you design your own itinerary.
North Wales has specially designed bus services to get you into the most unspoilt corners, and are practically tailor made for walkers. The Snowdon Sherpa service takes you throughout Snowdonia and lets you hop off wherever a trail takes your fancy. So go on, leave the car at home.
