Wales

Marvel at the magnificence of Snowdonia’s mountains, enjoy the tranquillity of the lakes and national parks, and explore the lush green valleys as you tour Wales. Read more...

It may be small, but Wales punches well above its weight. This is the land of Celtic culture and castles. Some are in ruins, others have been home to the same family for generations or been transformed into hotels. Cardiff Castle watches over the city, while Carreg Cennen Castle sits of a cliff overlooking the River Cenne in the village of Trapp.

The coastline is among the most beautiful in the British Isles. Walk part of the 1400-kilometre Wales Coast Path that runs through national parks, along golden beaches and hidden coves, passes even more castles and takes in fishing villages and thriving cities.

Among its most beautiful regions is Snowdonia stretching from the northwest coastline inland to rocky mountains, oak forests, sparkling lakes and rushing rivers.

One of the country’s most memorable features though has nothing to do with the landscape. Here, many people still speak the traditional language and you’ll hear it across the country.
