In these three guides to the fabulously mountainous and rugged Snowdonia area Tim travels on two of Wales’s iconic narrow gauge railways – the Snowdon Mountain Railway up the highest mountain in England and Wales, and then on the much longer Ffestiniog Railway. He visits one of Britain’s most powerful and beautiful castles at Caernarfon; visits the Italian-style village of Portmeirion where the cult TV series the Prisoner was filmed… finds out all about David Lloyd George, one of the greatest British reformers and war leaders… visits some of Britain’s finest gardens and stately homes and visits some great mountain scenery. The guides total to just over seventy minutes of on-location interviews and sounds creating a great “sense of place” in North Wales.
