Dream Trip: 30 days in Great Britain part 3: North Wales to Manchester

Jump to last reply

Thanks to all who have helped me on two previous posts. I'm back to seek advice regarding the last leg of our trip. We will be travelling by ferry from Dublin to Holyhead on Friday morning, 22 June 2012. We want to spend a few days seeing sights in northern Wales before flying home from Manchester. Seems easy enough to take the train from Holyhead to Bangor...is Bangor the best place to use as a base for seeing Beaumaris and Caernarvon? Could you help me with lodging and transportation recommendations in the area?
From northern Wales, we would like to continue on by train and stop at either Chester or Manchester before taking the train to York for an overnight visit. Then will return to Manchester to fly home. Any opinions on Chester vs. Manchester? What about hotels in those areas? I saw the Palace Hotel on google maps, that's near the Oxford Road rail station in Manchester. Any feedback on it?
As always, thanks in advance for any useful tips and opinions you can provide.
