NORTH WALES is the northern-most "unofficial" region of Wales. It borders Ceredigion and Powys to the south, in Mid-Wales, Shropshire to the east and Cheshire to the north-west.
The area is mostly rural, with many mountains and valleys which in combination with its coast (on the Irish Sea), means tourism is now the principal industry. Farming, which was once the main economic force in the area, is now much reduced in importance. North Wales includes many miles of scenic coastline and beaches, a range of landscapes, charming small towns and villages full of character, along with plenty of open spaces allowing visitors to get away from it all and enjoy the best of the scenic Welsh countryside.
One of the most notorious landmarks in North Wales is the simply breathtaking Mount Snowden, standing proud in Snowdonia National Park, amongst the glacial landforms that form the park. If you jump aboard the histororic Snowdon Mountain Railway to the summit of Wales's highest mountain there are views across the sea to Ireland. (On a clear day!) Not forgetting the Menai Strait: a narrow stretch of shallow tidal water about 25 km long, which separates the island of Anglesey from the mainland of Wales.
That aside - North Wales has become an increasingly popular holiday destination in recent years and offers some simply stunning coastlines and beaches, along with visitor attractions. Including Knightlys Fun-Fair and Tir Prince Amusement Park in Towyn, (Tir Prince also hosts a great market!), the Palace Fun Centre in Rhyl, Aquarium, Welsh Mountain Zoo - the list goes on!
Add to that the simply stunning sandy beaches along the North Welsh coastline and you really couldn't wish for much more on your holiday!
