REPORT ON NORTH WALES TOUR – 22-26 SEPTEMBER, 2019 

On Sunday morning, 22 September, 26 members of The Arts Society Bromley left their homes between 7.30 and 8.00 am to set off for North Wales. It was a long day but we visited Chirk Castle on the way, a fortified medieval bastion. The following days we spent visiting lovely gardens (for example, Bodnant Gardens and Plas Newydd); we enjoyed the delights of Portmeirion; scuttled around Caernarfon Castle in the rain; and travelled up to the top of Snowdon by train: we couldn’t see the top but we waved to lots of sheep and walkers.


The highlights of the tour were visits to Gwydir Castle, which was being restored by a couple of real enthusiasts, and to Weston Park, a beautifully restored house around which we were guided by the Head Curator. It was a treasure house of paintings and furniture.


We stayed at an excellent hotel with staff who were very good and our driver negotiated some hair-raising Welsh roads.  An excellent tour.
