Wales is a country famous for its rugged coastline and spectacular deep green valleys. It is home to three National Parks, Snowdonia, Brecon Beacons and Pembrokeshire Coast, all of which make up 20% of the country. Full of lakes and hiking trails and the Snowdon Mountain Railway which goes up to the summit, these parks are perfect for the adventurous holidaymaker, though there are also lots of walks for those who just want a gentle stroll. The landscapes and habitats of these areas are impressive, and Wales is full of beautiful villages and towns that you can stop at to enjoy the local produce and stunning scenery. The capital city of Cardiff has a great young nightlife scene and is known for its imposing medieval castle. The country has miles of coastland and typical seaside resorts to visit as well as more inland attractions, such as zip-wiring hundreds of feet up in the air as well as ancient monuments and museums in the major towns and cities. You will find some of the UK’s finest castles here, with Wales being known as the ‘Castle Capital of the World’. From imposing traditional castles such as Ragland and Caerphilly, to the quirky St Quentins and Castell Coch, you will be sure to find one right for you.
