Wales is a constituent of the United Kingdom that has its own language and alphabet! The population of wales is famously less than the number of sheep; despite this, the Welsh are a friendly bunch who all share a deep-rooted passion for rugby. To make sure you don’t miss anything, be sure to check out our guide to Wales!
Located on the western coast of Wales, Aberystwyth (known as Aber by the locals) is a quaint seaside university town characterized by victorian buildings and a beautiful rugged coastline. Aberystwyth is still home to over 50 pubs despite its tiny stature, so we almost guarantee you won’t leave thirsty!
The Gower Peninsula is a place of outstanding natural beauty; the peninsula has been designated the UK’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Gower is filled with traditional pubs, quaint villages, and a staggering coastline; there is no better place to be when the sun shines!
The natural beauty and abundance of walking lines are irresistible to ramblers and nature lovers alike. A Brecon Beacons National park vacation is a genuine escape from the modern-day rat race. Only a few quaint villages are dotted amidst the rolling hills, each unique in personality, providing you with a diverse set of stopover points.
Hay on Wye
Although technically a part of the Brecon Beacons National Park, we believe that Hay-on-Wye deserves a place on this list! Built on the River Wye, on the Welsh-Eglish border, Hay-on-Wye makes a great entry point to the Brecon national park. Moreover, the village is famous for its annual Hay festival in the British summertime (May/June).
The capital city of Wales is all you’d expect from one of the most vibrant cities in the UK, packed with fascinating history, many cultures and of course a lively nightlife. Furthermore, recent developments in infrastructure combine beautifully with ancient architecture. We recommend watching Wales play rugby at the Millennium Stadium for an authentic taste of Welsh culture.
Snowdonia national park is one of the most visited places in Wales, and we can certainly see why! Tourists are drawn by the park’s natural beauty and the thrill of conquering the highest peak in Wales, Snowdon. That said, Snowdonia is a perfect vacation for ramblers of all abilities, given the abundance of walking lines at varying degrees of difficulty.
