Head for the Hills; Traveller's Bible Praises North Wales


Byline: By CARL BUTLER

NORTH Wales was last night given the thumbs up by the independent traveller's Bible, the Lonely Planet Guide.

The latest Great Britain edition describes the region as blessed with extremes of rocky mountain summits and long, sandy beaches.

The highlights and lowlights of the guide include NORTH EASTERN WALES - the coast may be lined with so-so beach resorts, but inland the hills set the pulse racing in anticipation of Snowdonia's mountain treats.

WREXHAM - the main reason for coming to this ordinary town is to visit Erddig, a magnificent, stately 18th-century home and country park. Last night, Wrexham Council said it did not comment on such guides.

LLANGOLLEN - good for coffeedrinking and river-watching, shopping for antiques, and relaxing steam train rides, or horse drawn canal boat trips.

SNOWDONIA NATIONAL PARK - in a country overflowing with uplands, Snowdonia National Park lords it over the rest.

LLANBERIS - an easy place to linger and walk your legs off. PORTMEIRION - a seaside village with a magical twist.

LLANDUDNO - boasts a handsome mile-long seafront of regal hotels, seethes with holidaymakers in summer and attracts a steady stream of pensioners.
