bad weatherNow that summer seems to have given up and slinked back into the clouds, you could be forgiven for thinking that the time for fun is over and that the winter grind is back.

However, if you’re based in North Wales then you certainly have no shortage of exciting things to see and do without you ever needing to get your mac on.

So if you’re planning ahead for the less than perfect seasons in this most beautiful of regions, here are some tips to cure the autumnal blues.

 

1. Go Shopping
It’s called retail therapy for a good reason! There are many shopping centres and arcades around the area which means you may not have to risk getting wet for your shopping fix. With centres in Llandudno, Wrexham and more, you’re bound to be able to make a day of it.

 

2. Full Steam Ahead
North Wales is one of sadly too few places which still embraces steam transport and it has many rail networks to celebrate the classic mode of transport. Whether you’re taking a trip on the Welsh Highland Railway or the Llangollen Railway, you are in for a treat.

 

3. Explore the Past
The region has many excellent museums and exhibitions which celebrate the past that North Wales is closely associated with. The National Slate Museum, Holyhead Maritime Museum, Plas Newydd, and the many castles across the region offer a superb solution if you’re looking to uncover the illustrious past.

 

4. Go Below
Quite literally. What better way of escaping the bad weather than going deep underground? A visit to the Llechwedd Slate Caverns will see you entering a unique and fascinating underground world with activities for all the family, no less so than with the amazing giant trampolines in the cavern!

 

5. Discover Nature
You might think that you need to put on a seriously thick fleece to discover nature but as there are so many indoor attractions in the area, you may never need to. Pili Palas Nature World and Anglesey Sea Zoo are both based on the historic island and have been by loved for many years. Either (or both if you’re feeling adventurous!) are sure to be great days out with the kids.

Feeling blue about the inevitable bad weather? At least you don’t have to face anything like this below!
