Snowdonia & Brecon Beacons Road Trip

If you are looking for a perfect Road Trip in the UK, look no further than the beautiful country of Wales, set on the western side of the UK, Wales offers some of the finest roads and scenic sights along the way. Add to that, when it comes to driving, quite possibly the finest National Park in the UK, Snowdonia with its perfect combination of mountain passes, and lower valley drives.  If you love driving, then it makes perfect sense to plan yourself a short road trip to explore this most amazing part of the UK.

This three-night road trip in the UK starts from the historic city of Bath and includes two full days of driving three of the best driving regions in Wales.  First, you cross the Seven Bridge into Wales, and head along to the Brecon Beacons, featuring amongst other great roads, the Black Mountain Pass of Top Gear fame.  Next, your road trip heads onto the Elan Valley, with its deserted drives past Victorian reservoirs and Dams you really immerse yourself into another world.  Finally, your road trip heads into the Snowdonia National Park, with endless scenic roads and mountain passes, including the most dramatic stretch of road in the country, the Llanberis Pass

Day 1 - Arrivals into Bath

Arrive into the historic city of Bath - built historically for pleasure and relaxation, beautiful Bath has been a wellbeing destination since Roman times. The waters are still a big draw, both at the ancient Roman Baths and the thoroughly modern Thermae Bath Spa, which houses the only natural thermal hot springs in Britain you can bathe in.  Bath’s compact, visitor-friendly center is overflowing with places to eat and drink, plus some of the finest independent shops in Britain.  That evening you will stay at the award-winning Roseate Villa, just a few minutes walk from the historic center, with ample secure parking for your pride and joy.

OVERNIGHT: 4 Star Superior The Roseate Villa Bath

Day 2 - Brecon Beacons & Elan Valley

Your Road Trip starts with a tour west, across the Seven Bridge then head into the heart of the Brecon Beacons where you will drive a loop of two of the best passes in these parts, including the legendary (Top Gear fame) Black Mountain Pass.  Next, continue north towards the Elan Valley.  The incredible 72-square-mile Elan Valley in Powys is the perfect playground for cars and is voted among the top 10 greatest drives in Britain. The Elan Valley is famous for its network of Victorian dams and reservoirs created to supply the people of Birmingham, carrying water roughly 73 miles east to the Frankley Reservoir.

Drive along the entire length of the valley, past the reservoirs with their gothic Victorian dams, taking lunch adjacent to the valley.  After lunch, the tour continues north towards Snowdonia, skirting the outer edges of the park, where the roads are famously quiet, the perfect testing ground for any keen driver.  Spend your second evening in the heart of the National Park

OVERNIGHT: Gourmet Pub, Brigands Inn

Day 3 - Snowdonia National Park

Today's road trip scenic drive is all about exploring the very best of the Snowdonia National Park.  If you can, be sure to rise early, as the light can be absolutely fantastic as you make your way around Snowdonia, and of course, the traffic remains light (weekends) until mid-morning when day-trippers arrive, so do be sure to take advantage of the fact you can be on the roads nice and early.

The drive itself will be a clockwise loop around the park, with the summit of Snowdonia often in the distance.  You will tackle the most dramatic road in the park, the Llanberis Pass, as well as the Crimea pass, and our favorite road in Wales, the B4391.

Lunch is then taken in the heart of the Austrian Alps (did I hear that correctly!?), sorry, we mean on Lake Vyrnwy - one of the most picture-postcard settings in the whole of the UK.  After lunch, loopback south into Mid Wales, where there is time to visit the Clywedog Reservoir, another stunning part of middle Wales, before spending the evening in one of the finest B&B Guest Houses in middle Wales, the Ty Capel
