Bear Grylls RibRide Holyhead 2016 and London Euston

Fri 27th May 2016

The Bear Grylls RibRide is BACK in Holyhead for Summer 2016. The orange RIB, once owned by Bear, has arrived at the North of the Island. We are starting the special summer trips to the Gogarth cliffs and the Skerries this weekend.

The Bear Grylls RIB has been at Euston station this week, show on the large unmissable Transvision screen, next to the departures board. Commuters have been told ‘North Wales is waiting for you’ in a new video showcasing the best the adventure tourism our region has to offer.
