FANCY a trip on the Orient Express?
A day trip to Portmeirion, Snowdonia on board the Northern Belle by Orient-Express is departing from Huddersfield.
The trip, on Saturday, May 14, will cost £285 per person and you can visit the eclectic Portmeirion village and the beautiful and unique creation of Clough William-Ellis, built on his own private peninsula off the coast of Snowdonia in the North West of Wales.
Clough William-Ellis’ lifelong concern was architecture and landscape design and Portmeirion village allowed him to give his ideas a gloriously unique, physical expression.
The eclectic village was famously used for the filming of the cult 1960’s television show The Prisoner and is the spiritual home of the Portmeirion style of pottery.
A delicious brunch is served on your outward journey to Blaenau Ffestiniog.
Here you board the Ffestiniog Railway narrow-gauge railway for the scenic journey through Snowdonia National Park to Porthmadog and then take a short coach transfer along the cob to Portmeirion.
At Portmeirion your time is your own to explore the village’s charming architecture set in beautiful grounds.
At the end of the visit you are taken on a guided coach tour ending at the Northern Belle.
A glass of chilled champagne is served as soon as you board the train, followed by a sumptuous supper accompanied by half a bottle of wine.
Deals are available with 10% off a table of four.
