PLEASE fill out the polls, even if you already commented on Pen's activities post. We need to know numbers because we might be booking additional transport.

Caernarfon castle/slate works/aviation museum

This will now be on SUNDAY (not Tuesday).

Tickets for the castle are £7.95.
Tickets for the slate works self-guided tour are £5.50.
Tickets for the aviation museum are £6.50.

Caernarfon Castle is right in the middle of the town, so if you choose to visit Caernarfon only you can also explore the town. The Welsh Highland Railway also runs from Caernarfon to Porthmadog if you fancy a scenic trip.

[Poll #2046079]

Portmerion/Plas Brondanw gardens

This will now be on TUESDAY (not Sunday).

Tickets for entry to Portmerion are £11.00 on the day. We may be able to get a group discount if we book in advance but we need to know exact numbers.

Tickets for Plas Brondanw gardens are £4.00.

If people would like to spend the whole time at either one of these rather than visiting both, we can arrange suitable drop-off and pickup times.

[Poll #2046080]


This is scheduled for WEDNESDAY.

Tickets for the Snowdon summit railway are:
£23 for the Early Bird (09:00 am train), which obviously has a much higher chance of cloud at the summit.
£29 for the diesel trains (10:00, 12:00 or 14:00).
£37 for the steam trains (09:30, 13:00).

If the weather forecast is cloudy, we will have a day trip to Chester instead. It's a very pretty cathedral city with plenty of shops and sightseeing. Depending on how the numbers/transport works out, we might also be able to split the day's trips and people can choose Snowdon or Chester (no guarantee). ETA: Chester also has a large zoo, which could be an option.

Adding my Plus One to the responses looks as follows:

Caernarfon plus aviation museum

Portmeirion plus gardens

Chester rather than Snowdon (apparently he has walked up Snowdon, hah!)

Afternoon tea, yes please.

Hi folks.

Have had zero time to look at any of these options.... will try to do that in the next day or so. Sorry!

I'd quite like to see Snowdon, but at that price and given Chester as an option (cathedral! Mediaeval walls!), Chester it is. :)

both the slate works and aviation museum sound good to me, so I just randomly selected a button.

I would really love to do Snowdon, but I suspect the price will rule it out for me. :-/ Chester looks lovely, too!
