Driving Routes

Hello there. 
As soon as the weather looks a bit less threatening we’d like to take a few days and enjoy some of North Wales’ best driving roads. 
Is there a collection of R6’s recommendations that is available to members please?

    Evo triangle - fantastic route and a regular for us. 50mph restriction and average speed cameras are recent additions which somewhat spoil the fun. Still a nice drive but be very careful. We have a zero tolerance on speeding in North Wales. 
    The 3 best passes in North Wales are: 
    • Llanberris - A4086 from Capel Curig to Caernarfon 
    • Aber Glaslyn - A4085 from Caernarfon to Beddgelert
    • Nant Francon - A5 from Bethesda to Capel Curig
    Other excellent roads include:
    • A470 from Llandudno all the way through to Dolgellau
    • A494 from Dolgellau up to Bala and beyond 
    • Anglesey has some excellent roads and restaurants

    Places worth a visit: 
    • Portmeirion - Italiante village where The Prisoner was filmed - free entry if you book lunch
    • Zip World in Bethesda - longest zip in Europe - good for a coffee stop and watching the zippers 
    • Bodnant gardens - National Trust
    • Betwys y Coed - decent sized place with craft / tourist shops
    • Rhug Bison Farm on A5 near Corwen - good coffee or lunch stop
    • Llandudno - prom is lovely. Lots to do in the town if you want a break from driving
    Places to stay - not sure of your budget so here's a mix
    • Waterloo Hotel in Betws y Coed 
    • Riverside Hotel in Betws y Coed
    • The Quays Hotel in Deganwy
    • Tyn y Coed Hotel in Capel Curig 
    • Sportsmans in Porthmadog - good location but some rooms are a bit jaded 
    • Bodysgallen Hall - lovely but pricey

    I hope that gets you started. Please shout if you need more info or any help with things.

    Sue, that's brilliant.
    Thank you very much.
    I've invested in a Drivesmart speed camera locator which I'll be sure to update before I make the trip - looking forward to it already.
    Thanks again
