Travel to North Wales by road

From nearby Liverpool and Manchester, it’s best to take the A55 (or N Wales Expy). If you’re travelling from further North – in England or Scotland – the M6 will take you to the M56, where you can then link with the A55.

From the South West, take the M5 on to the M6 to Wolverhampton, then continue on to the M54 and eventually the A5 to Conwy.

From London and the South East, take the M1, then merge with the M6 and A5 in Telford and Wrekin. From here you can follow the A5 to your destination.

To plan your journey we recommend using the AA Route Planner

Travel to North Wales by train

While it takes a good deal longer than driving, the train is a scenic and relaxing way to make your way to North Wales, enjoying the dramatic landscape as you travel. Most trains hug the coast above Snowdonia National Park, making for a beautiful journey.

Travel to North Wales by plane

There are direct flights to Cardiff Airport from around the UK and Ireland several times a day. While this will get you to Wales faster, keep in mind that you’ll have to travel by road or train from Cardiff to North Wales once you arrive, which may end up making your journey time longer.
