A huge and Happy Easter from all at Meee! We know that with the Easter holidays and long bank holiday weekend it can be hard to find cheap and fun activities to do with the family. We have compiled a list of our 4 favourite attractions this spring!
Mostyn Gallery in Llandudno
Are you in the Llandudno area looking for something indoors to do? This gallery is perfect! The art collection of Lady Augusta Mostyn is housed right in the town centre. Today with a modern extension there are regular exhibitions, highlighting fascinating local history, and events make this a destination worth returning to time and again. Plus a brilliant shop and a great little cafe.
Dare to walk Pontcysyllte Aqueduct
Fancy living life on the wild side? At 121ft high this wonder of the Georgian age and World Heritage Site, to be found near Llangollen, is certainly not for the faint-hearted. With stunning views and andrenaling boosting heights, this aqueduct is well worth it.
Experience the hard life of Victorian workers
The National Slate Museum (Llanberis, Gwynedd) features workshops and buildings left just as if the men who once mined this area had simply vanished. But don’t worry year round demonstrations and talks suited to families, make this worth the journey (Not to mention it's completely free!) Take a walk around this area of stunning natural beauty and have a picnic by the lake.
Strike off the seven
Explore Wales at it's finest this Easter! The Seven Wonders of Wales are all worth a visit and most are free, although there is a very small charge for St Winefride’s Well in Holywell, so definitely doesn’t count! The others:
- Pistyll Rhaeadr.
- Steeple of St Giles' Church, Wrexham.
- Yew trees at St Mary the Virgin, Overton-on-Dee.
- Llangollen Bridge.
- Bells of All Saints' Church, Gresford.
