Next, a visit to Llanberis the village nesting at the foot of Snowdon for marvellous scenery and a walk into the towering slate quaries in which a castle set was built and a peer into the depths of the deep turquoise lake that was used for that epic leap in the film. Then it's back aboard your coach for a scenic drive learning on the way about the geology, industry and hill farming has shaped the landscape to see the other film locations deep in the mountains whilst your guide retells the ancient legends of Arthurs' knights awaiting his bugle call to rid Wales of the Saxons!

Here be dragons!

The majestic Nant Gwynant valley comes next passing Dinas Emrys hearing the truth and the myths behind our marvellous red dragon flag and how Merlin was involved! Another legend then as we pass through Beddgelert the pretty village forever linked with Prince Llewellyn and his faithful hound and the inspiration for Rupert the Bear.
