Buses from York to Conwy, Wales (Or England-Wales)

by Zoria

I learned to know that buses are the cheapest way of travelling in England/Wales and will probably use that option from going to London-York. It's only about a 4 hours drive isn't it?

My real question was, how do i find bus routes from York to North Wales, for instance to Conwy? Have searched on the net but haven't found anything. It should also be possible to take a train from York to Conwy i think, but won't that be more expensive?
Bus routes from England to Wales in general would also be nice to have.

Thanks in advance:-)

Using the National Express website, I can find a bus from York to Llandudno via Leeds taking over 7 hours and costing £33. Click on the CAN'T FIND YOUR DESTINATION? tab on the left hand side and enter Llandudno.

Taking the train will see you going via Manchester with an APEX fare starting at £30 and a journey time of under 4 hours.

TAKE THE TRAIN!

Coaches are generally cheaper, yes, but you have to factor in the time they take. They also only travel between certain places (which is why you couldn't find Conwy); you then have to get a local bus onwards.

You could get a local bus from Llandudno to Conwy (http://www.carlberry.co.uk/rfnshowl.asp?L1=LLA155 has links) but the train would be a much quicker way of getting there from York. www.nationalrail.co.uk or www.thetrainline.com for times and fares.

As for London-York, train is much quicker. Most NE coaches take around 6 hours and are incredibly boring compared to the 2,5 hrs train journey. As soon as I got a decent salary I started taking the train. You're not below 26 or travel with children? In that case there are great discount cards for train journeys.

Crossing England from East to West has always been harder than North to South which is why Wales is even more cumbersome to reach. If you DO go by coach, you could always go to Chester with the morning departure and spend some time there before hitting Wales if you want a break.

Travel Tips for York

My second VT meeting

by Helga67

On our one-day trip to York, we had the pleasure of meeting Steve (Steventilly). He drove almost 2 hours (due to heavy traffic) to meet us for lunch at Betty's. It was a lovely lunch in a wonderful, but 'the most expensive place' of York. Afterwards Steve showed us some not-to-miss spots in York. Thanks Steve, it was great !

Monk Bar

by sandysmith

The 4 storied Monk Bar is York's tallest and most impressive Medieval Gatehouse . The elaborate design of the gatehouse meant that it could function as a self-contained fortress with each floor capable of being defended. It is said King Richard added its top storey himself in 1484. Monk Bar still has its portcullis and winding mechanism. In fact, the portcullis was regularly raised and lowered until 1970.

Guided Walking Tour of Historic York

by londonlover

This sign is just outside Goodramgate, on the western side of the city, and this is the meeting point for a daily walking tour let by a local guide. It lasts for about two hours, and depending on the guide, will give you various insights into modern and historic life in York, its customs, background, and architecture. A very nice introduction to the city.

Richard III Museum

by christine.j

Guidebooks about York mention this museum under the heading "What to do in York when you have more than 5 days". And it's true, if you have no idea who Richard III was and if you don't know the play by Shakespeare, this museum won't interest you.
But if you do, then it's very interesting. It mainly deals with the question if Richard really was the villain Shakespeare described.
It's a very small place, crammed into two rooms over Monk Bar. You can also see two Medieval prison cells.
Access is through a very steep, very narrow and very dark staircase, so anybody having problems with stairs won't be able to visit it.
When I was there I was the only visitor, if there are more than 5 or 6 people it will be overcrowded. I don't know how they manage schooltrips in there.
I was very glad I was able to visit this museum. It is really interesting.

Hospitum

by sandysmith

Near the entrance to S tMary's Abbey are the remains of St Leonards Hospital. It used to be the guest hall for pilgrims and other visitors to St. Mary's Abbey but is now part of the Yorkshire Museum and houses exhibitions on a regular basis.
