Not only do we have great cycling and mountain biking in North Wales, there are also lots of other things to do from fabulous walks, historic castles, buildings and gardens, market towns, canals, country parks, highropes, canoeing, climbing ... you name it we have it, all within a stunning setting.

Where do we begin? You can fly somewhere over the rainbow in a hot air balloon. You can look for dragons in enchanted forests. Or shop for cheese at one of our food festivals. Whatever floats your boat - you'll find it here.

Places to go in Conwy

kf0dkf0d

Conwy County is small, so you don’t have to go far to find great things to do and places to go. We’ve entertainment for both children and adults. Like the Welsh Mountain Zoo near Colwyn Bay or the pottery painting studio in Llandudno, so it’s perfect for family fun days out. And our romantic spots are ideal for couples. Visit the beautiful gardens at Bodnant, or the lonely wilds of Pensychnant Nature Reserve, where you can be completely alone.

Places to go in North Wales

kf0dkf0d

North Wales is small. But our list of attractions is big. You can visit the locals at Conwy RSPB Nature Reserve, or the not-so-locals at Pili Palas. Take a train to the top of Snowdon, or journey deep inside an electric mountain at Elidir. Tour one of 11 National Trust properties, Erddig comes complete with landscaped parkland (very handy for walking off that Welsh cream tea). And while you're outdoors, you can bike on four wheels at Glasfryn Parc, trot on four legs at Tal y Foel Riding Centre, or try Wales' first bouncing pillow at the Greenwood Forest Park. And that's the trouble with North Wales, you see. What to do next?

Rhyl Seaquarium

kf0dkf0d

Situated on the promenade at Rhyl, North Wales.
Walk through the under water tunnel - the first one in Wales - and get really close to our wonderful creatures without actually getting wet! Explore and walk from cold fresh water lakes high in the mountains, down to the shore and out into the waves. Then dive down onto the continental shelf, follow it as it goes deeper and deeper, until finally it falls away, down into the deep abyss. Along the way you will see hundreds of animals from many different species, including salamanders that never grow up, animals with lots of legs but no bones, frogs that think they're skydivers and a moray eel disguised as a zebra.

With regular talks, touchpools and feeding demonstrations, there is something for everyone.

The Centre is wheelchair/pushchair friendly and has a fantastic choice of snacks and meals in the restaurant, an amazing variety of souvenirs in the gift shop and a fun adventure play area and outdoor patio.

Open daily from 10.00 am (please call for Winter opening times.)

Abseil uk

kf0dkf0d

We can give you a thrill you won`t forget - abseiling into the 120ft Devil`s Gorge. Your instructor will introduce you to the equipment and give you a short training lecture, then you abseil down the 75⁰ slope - The Slide. You now have an option. You can wimp out and repeat The Slide or go the full test and abseil the 120ft Overhang. This is real nerve racking stuff. A free hang (no body contact with the rock!!) abseil.
