Discover Wales

Wales is full of magical things to experience, from the bustling Valleys of the South up to the towering mountains of the North and all the beautiful places with pleasingly tongue-twisting names in between.

The rugged Welsh coast offers up miles of award-winning beaches and stunning scenery, and the winding coastal paths and trails here are some of the best around. There’s no place better for an exciting outdoor escapade than in the National Parks of Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons.

The tapestry of Welsh history is a long and vibrant one, and the country is well-known for its many grand and imposing castles – in fact, it’s thought there are more here per square mile than anywhere else in the world, so get out and discover them for yourself!
