BOB HIND samples north Wales services through the Snowdonia region

M&H Coaches Optare Solo SR (YJ64 DXO) on the TrawsCymru T8, arriving at Chester Interchange.

Everyone has their own favourite bus route. My favourites change every time I venture out on a new adventure. There have been polls and websites proclaiming the most popular; the 555 from Lancaster to Keswick and the 840 from Leeds to Whitby often feature, although I was curious to see the Birmingham Outer Circle, 11/11A, included in one list, interesting yes but hardly scenic!

So, in this series I make no pretence to knowing which are Britain’s most scenic routes; the ones I choose are just beautiful, often spectacular places I have visited by bus and can often make a great day out.

I make no apology for starting in the Land of my (grand)Fathers, often underrated, always, in my opinion worth visiting. A trip round North Wales gives me the opportunity to experience the ever-expanding TrawsCymru network.
