Explore Barmouth with Expedia’s Travel Guides to find the best hotels, flights, holiday packages and more!
Situated beside the spilling estuary of the River Mawddach, the small seaside town of Barmouth in County Gwynedd on the northwest coast of Wales will take your breath away. Overlooking the monumental mountains of Snowdonia, and with attractions nearby from ruins to rivers, you’ll definitely want to rent a car to explore everything this isolated retreat has to offer.
Whether you’re flying to Anglesey or Liverpool Airport, once you arrive in Wales you’ll definitely benefit from having a rental car to get around. The country is a very popular hiking destination, but getting to and from the best walking locations definitely requires some wheels. For maximum convenience, be sure to rent a car before you arrive. Pick your rental car up from the airport and drive to Barmouth via the A487 and A496 from Anglesey, or via the A494 from Liverpool.
Why not make a stop at Snowdonia’s Dinorwig Power Station? Nicknamed the ‘Electric Mountain’, this epic hydro-electric generator is buried deep inside one of the huge mountains of Snowdonia National Park. Located just off the A406 road, it’s a Herculanean feat of engineering and is just one of the great sights you can see in the area if you’re driving a rental car.
