Region: Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South. Town: Hailed as the Gateway to Snowdonia, Betws-Y-Coed is now the principal village of the Snowdonia National Park. Much of Betws-Y-Coed was built in Victorian times on the site where the River Conwy joins its three tributaries. Its natural beauty has inspired artists since those times and many continue to visit to try and capture something of the stunning scenery. Thick woodlands and imposing mountains dominate the skyline, offering an unspoilt habitat to a variety of animals, birds and some rare species of plants. With Mount Snowdon looming as a backdrop, Betws-Y-Coed attracts walkers, climbers and mountain-bikers throughout the year. As a result, the town is well served by inns and pups where you can sample local delights such as traditional Welsh rarebit and Glamorgan sausages. Also of interest are the many bridges in the area. Pont-y-Pair, built in 1468, is buffeted by foaming water after heavy rain, hence the meaning of its name: the Bridge of the Cauldron. A number of sign-posted walks in the surrounding countryside start near this bridge. A mile or so away is the Miner's Bridge, on the road to Capel Curig, where early miners crossed the river on a steep ladder to get to work.More
