We are heading from the South West to Pwllheli next week. The RAC routeplanner is offering 3 routes across Wales,

1. the A479 then A470, (quickest)

2. M5, to Gloucester then to A417, and then A49 to Welshpool, then A 458 then A470 (20 mins longer than quickest route 10 miles longer than route 1.)

3. M5 then M54 then A5 past Shrewsbury, the B4396, the B4391 to Bala, the A4212 then the A470 (15 mins longer than the quickest route 50 miles longer than route 1)

We are not familiar with any of the routes beyond Shrewsbury, so would really appreciate any opinions on the best towing route. Thanks!

M5 to M54 will involve roadworks on M5 (J2 to J1) These are really bad so I would avoid that one! Sorry, can't help on the others.

Hi,
When we head up that way we use the Mid Wales route that you listed and find it OK.
You will avoid the M5 holdups and pass through some beautiful scenery as well.
A word to the wise, around the Brecon area be very aware of motorcyclists, they are there in their hundreds every day, some are travelling really fast.
Hope you have a good trip and holiday.
Regards,
Greg
