The pictures in this gallery have been taken during various short holidays in Snowdonia and are shown in chronological (and not geographical) order. We have also a page with panoramas taken during our many walks in the area. Snowdonia is one of our favourite destination in the UK: we will surely visit again and add more pictures as we go, so it's worth coming back for checking from time to time.
