Its Celtic heritage, stunning landscapes, vivid coastal towns and fascinating castles make Wales an exciting and memorable place to visit.
The beautiful Welsh coastline is mostly mountainous, with its highest peaks located in the North and Central areas. Getting to the summit of Wales’ largest peak, Mount Snowdon has a high payoff, with spectacular views from every angle.
Soaking up the wonderful Welsh scenery is not complete until a visit has been paid to Snowdonia National Park, the third largest in Great Britain. The park is home to rare mammals such as otters, polecats, goats and birds including ravens, merlin, and the red kite.
Unforgettable hikes in the Brecon Beacons National Park, as well as hill walking, gorge-walking, climbing, caving, mountain biking and horse riding are all great ways of exploring Wales’ green mountainous coastlines.
Just a short distance from Swansea is The Gower Peninsula, an area famed for its immense natural beauty – so much so that it was the first area in the UK to be designated a protected area back in 1956. The Gower Peninsula is a varied landscape that includes wild moors, towering cliffs, and sandy beaches.
Moving away from nature and into urban environments, Conwy, a walled market town is home to an imposing Welsh castle that dates back to the early 13th century. The quaint town is featured in the Guinness Book of Records for having the smallest house in Great Britain, with dimensions of 3.05 metres x 1.8 metres.
Cardiff, Wales’ lively capital city is home to renowned attractions such as the Millennium Stadium and the regenerated Cardiff Bay, a metropolitan area filled with restaurants, cafes, bars, and shops.
To enjoy the main Welsh sites and luscious landscape you can stay in a choice of traditional mid-class hotels. Those located in big cities have modern décor and facilities; whereas those found in rural areas tend to be smaller and more traditional in style, with a charming and friendly feel.
