Wales Holiday

Medieval castles, national parks, unspoiled coastlines and culture-rich cities make this United Kingdom country a thrilling place to visit. Wales packs a lot of scenic beauty into its compact size. The countryside is characterized by mountain ranges, wide river valleys, attractive coastline and ancient castles. Visit the towns and cities as well to see historic sites and cultural attractions.

Explore Welsh spots of beauty. Go hiking, caving, canoeing and rock climbing at Brecon Beacons National Park. Step aboard the Brecon Mountain Railway for a scenic trip. Climb the peaks of Snowdonia National Park and visit the Gower Peninsula for its coves, cliffs and sandy beaches. 

In 2012, Wales opened the Coast Path, an 870-mile (1,550-kilometre) uninterrupted route that follows the country’s entire coastline. Walk or cycle along clifftop paths, visit secluded beaches and look for wildlife, including puffins and dolphins.

Beyond the fabulous scenery, see what the nation’s urban areas offer. Cardiff is the capital, an attractive modern city with numerous attractions. Explore Cardiff Bay, a regenerated docklands area of trendy boutiques, hotels, cafés and restaurants. Watch a concert at the Wales Millennium Centre, a striking steel and slate structure. View the art, archeology and natural history collections at the National Museum Cardiff. On the outskirts of the city is St Fagans National History Museum, 100 acres (40 hectares) of parkland that exhibits original houses from different historic periods.

Swansea is another large city in Wales. Visit the childhood home of Dylan Thomas, the country’s most famous poet. Treat the family to a day of aquatic fun at the LC Swansea waterpark and stroll through Clyne Gardens, home to more than 2,000 species of plants.

Wales has more than 600 castles, from Roman defensive strongholds to the fantasy projects of 19th-century millionaires. Tour the 11th-century Chepstow Castle with its 800-year-old wooden doors. See the lavishly decorated rooms of Castell Coch, a late 19th-century building constructed on the ruins of a 13th-century castle. Climb the towers of the 12th-century Dinefwr Castle.

Join other tourists drawn to the history, culture and fascinating scenery of Wales.
