The Time Travellers September trip. 2018
This year we hope to be booking for Tuesday 11th to Friday 14th September inclusive. We will travel on the Tuesday and return on Friday morning.
Awaiting final confirmation of our Hotel on Anglesey with Nant Yr Odyn Country Hotel at Llangefni. Arrangements are slightly different this year in that we will have exclusive use of the Hotel with all 14 rooms available to us. We/they can accommodate single occupancy as well as having double and twin rooms. Price for Dinner, bed and breakfast for 3 nights seems very reasonable and we can give you a firm price as soon as the owners return from holiday. However, because we will be taking over the hotel we will be asking for a non-returnable deposit – amount to be confirmed later.
So why the Cartoon? Anglesey has lots of prehistoric sites as well as a rather nice museum, art gallery and visitor centre near Lllangefni plus some famous sites like Bryn Celli Ddu, Din Lligwy etc etc. However it wouldn’t be the same if there weren’t a few Roman mosaics and castles included.
The plan is that we travel to Chester on Tuesday 11th September for a guided tour of Chester Castle , Town Walls and look at the Roman amphitheatre. Then on for a stop at Conwy Castle before reaching our Hotel on Anglesey.
Then, in no firm order at the moment, we will be visiting Caernarfon Castle and Segontium Roman Fort, checking out some of the many burial mounds, dolmens, chambers all over Anglesey. We also have Beaumaris Castle, Plas Newydd House ( Home of the Marquis of Anglesey) on Anglesey to see. Some of you might want to factor in a scenic drive home through Snowdonia or add even more sites of interest. Even Portmerion will not be too much of a detour!
So …….now for the practical arrangements. We need to have a firm idea of who will be interested as soon as possible. Can you e-mail me and Martin by 11th February to express interest. With only 14 rooms it will have to be first come, first served. However there is a nice pub with rooms nearby should interest exceed rooms at Nant Yr Odyn, with dinner being taken at our main hotel.
There will be the usual potential for car sharing.
