Post conference field trip

Post-conference field trip to North Wales

20-26 July 2013

For those wishing to stay on after the conference we are arranging a field excursion to North Wales, leaving London on 20 July and returning on 26 July.  

North Wales offers a variety of exciting bryological habitats including mountain cliffs with a range of arctic-alpines, ravines rich in Atlantic species, mine sites, and coastal habitats with extensive sand dune systems. For each excursion, we will try and cater for different fitness levels.

There are two booking options for the field excursion:

  • £395-All inclusive: travel, meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) and accommodation. Please note accommodation will be in small en suite hostel dormitories.  
  • £175-Travel only: This option covers travel by coach to and from London and throughout the field meeting. Participants must book own accommodation in Betws-y-Coed.

In North Wales, we will be based at the Swallow Falls Complex, situated 2 miles from the centre of Betws-y-Coed, and within the beautiful Snowdonia National Park . The Complex includes a Youth Hostel, a hotel and a campsite.  For those of you who have selected the all inclusive package, accommodation will be provided at the hostel.

For those wishing to book their own accommodation, we recommend the nearby Swallow Falls Hotel

Additional B&B accommodation options are also available in Betws-y-Coed and we anticipate that the coach will be able to pick up those staying there. If in doubt please do get in touch with us.
