Looking for Inspiration for the Perfect “Day Date”? Here’s Our Guide to Unique Days Out in Snowdonia

Plan the perfect day out with the one you love and surprise your partner with a visit to stunning North Wales and one of its many amazing attractions.

We’ve rounded the best the region has to offer for couples looking for a new experience to share and enjoy….

Gin or Whiskey?

Aber Falls is the first whisky distillery in North Wales in over 100 years. You can tour the distillery together and learn about Welsh Whisky or even become a distiller for the afternoon and make your own gin! Sit alongside the river and enjoy a range of Welsh food and drink in the stunning café and browse the brilliant shop, picking up some tasty locally sourced goods, and the award-winning portfolio of spirits.

The Best of Welsh Food

Set in the heart of the Conwy Valley, Bodnant Welsh Food is the perfect place for food lovers to visit and enjoy the best food & drink that Wales has to offer. Visit the farm shop brimming with artisan produce or eat in one of the two restaurants. Extend your stay by booking into the farmhouse accommodation or bring your own motorhome and camp on site.

A Taste of Italy

Experience the magic and romance of Portmeirion, the iconic Italianate Village at the southern gateway to the Llŷn Peninsula, where you can visit, stay, eat, shop, and relax. A visit to this tranquil idyll is surely one of North Wales’ most unique days out. Portmeirion is home to two hotels, a cluster of self-catering cottages, shops, a spa, award-winning restaurants, and cafés. Spend the day wandering through the village, enjoying everything that this special place has to offer.

A Hidden Gem

This stunning former quarry village of Nant Gwrtheyrn, on the North Wales coast near the village of Llithfaen, is a lot more than a language school. Here you can while away a day or a weekend, walking along the coast or spending the night at one of the former quarry men’s cottages. Walk paths where the sea and mountains meet along the romantic Coastal Path where wild animals, rare birds, plants, and flowers abound.

Head up the Orme

Delighting visitors since 1902, The Great Orme Tramway in Llandudno is Britain’s only cable-hauled road tram. A journey on this historic attraction takes you on a picturesque, mile-long trip from the edge of Llandudno to the summit of the Great Orme Country Park and Nature Reserve. On a clear day, views stretch as far as the Isle of Mann and the Lake District.

Another Level

Fancy something a little different? North Wales is the epi-centre of adventure on land and sea! Take to the water and enjoy a high octane RibRide or travel at break-neck speeds on Europe’s longest wire at Zip World

Traverse underground and navigate your way through underground caves also at Zip World or learn how to surf at Adventure Parc Snowdonia. The choice is endless for couples who want to take their special day up a notch!

A Head of Steam

North Wales is home to a number of steam trains that take passengers across on different journeys, along coasts, through mountains and forests. Take a look here and book your perfect journey. https://www.snowdonia360.com/attractions/steam-railways/

A Spot of Art

An easier way to while away your afternoon is at the beautiful Storiel gallery. The collections at Storiel include nearly 10,000 items of historic Welsh furniture, textiles, archaeology, ceramics, art, and photography. After you’ve visited the museum and gallery, browse the unique gift shop, full of local artisan crafts, cards, and gifts, or relax in the coffee shop and have yourself a ‘panad’ (that’s Welsh for cup of tea).

Get ahead and get planning. Use the Snowdonia 360 to plan your day and make it the most special one yet!
