Contestants begin their Welsh adventure at the formidable 19th century Welsh castle, Penrhyn Castle. The castle is owned by the National Trust and is just outside of Bangor.

Penrhyn Castle is currently open to visitors and you no longer need to book in advance.


Crowned attraction of the year 2019/2020, Llechwedd has a lot to offer, from the deep mines to the Zip World base, which has zip lines and underground trampolines.

One team chose Llechwedd as a key part of their tour, taking their clients on the zipline and through the mines and caves.

Snowdonia National Park

Home to the highest mountain in Wales, Mount Snowdon, is Snowdonia National Park which offers incredible views from the mountains to the lakes.

One team chose to base their visit to the national park with activities such as water painting and a scenic train tour.

The base for selling their tour tickets is the second ranked pier in the seaside town of Llandudno and it is the longest pier in Wales.

Both teams descended on the pier to try to sell their tour tickets and triumph in the assembly hall. The pier is open all year round where there are shops, stalls, arcades and fairground rides.

This premium Welsh whiskey is a luxury and popular brand and is distilled in the village of Penderyn, which was chosen because of the supply of fresh natural spring water.

The Diverse team chose the Penderyn Distillery and mispronounced the name for the final stop on their tour as their customers tasted the spirit.

Bodnant Furnace Farm Shop

In the heart of the Conwy Valley, Bodnant Welsh Food sells delicious Welsh produce from local suppliers. The Infinity team chose the Farm Shop as the last stop on their tour.

The farm shop is open daily and there are also three restaurants on site to enjoy.
