How long is the flight to Wales?

Keep in mind that flights to Wales from the United States will arrive at Cardiff Airport (CFR), as this is the primary airport in the country that is used for this route. When you depart from Los Angeles for Cardiff, you can expect for the trip to take you anywhere from 15h to 19h in total, while journeys originating in New York often take closer to 14h.

Where can you get direct flights to Wales from?

Direct flights from the United States to Wales are not currently available. However, you can find some cheap flights to Wales that require passengers to make either one or two stops before reaching their destination of Cardiff. If your flight originates in Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), you may have a layover in Amsterdam or Atlanta. If you’re flying out of an airport in New York, like John F.

What is the best way to travel around Wales?

There is also a mainline in North Wales that can bring you to cities like Bangor and Holyhead. If you would prefer to take buses between some of the large cities instead, you can book tickets through companies like National Express and Megabus. While there are several large cities in Wales, much of the country is rural, so traveling by car can be a convenient option as well.

What are some things to do in Wales?

A trip to Wales wouldn’t be complete without visiting Snowdonia National Park, a mountainous region in the northwestern part of the country that has a variety of scenic hiking trails. If you enjoy history and architecture, make sure to explore one of the famous castles, like Conwy Castle, Caernarfon Castle, or Cardiff Castle. If you’re interested in a unique way to see the country’s scenery, take the Snowdon Mountain Railway, which is a breathtaking journey up the Welsh summit. Plant lovers will certainly want to set aside some time for the National Trust - Bodnant Garden. To be by the ocean, take a trip to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

Do I need a passport or visa to fly to Wales?

As long as you are a citizen of the United States, you are not required to have a visa to travel to Wales. However, it’s important to keep in mind that without a visa, you can only stay in the country for up to six months. You will also be considered as a tourist, which means that you do not have the right to be employed during your stay in the country. You will need to have a valid passport that does not expire during your trip, and that has enough room for you to receive an immigration stamp. You will also need to show proof that you have booked a return flight back to the United States.

Wales Travel Information

  • Wales has three national parks and five areas of outstanding natural beauty. Snowdonia covers about 830 square miles in north-west Wales and Snowdon, at 3,560 feet, is the highest mountain in England and Wales. Tourists can take a train (March-November) almost to the summit.
  • On the coast of Snowdonia is Portmeirion, the Italianate village built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975.
  • The Brecon Beacons in south Wales is 500 miles of beautiful peaks, valleys, waterfalls and caves. The tallest peak here is Pen-y-Fan. It is a day’s walk to the summit, but there is a railway – Brecon Mountain Railway.
  • Wales has no shortage of castles, four of which are World Heritage sites: Caernarfon, Conwy, Beaumaris on the Island of Anglesey and Harlech.
  • The town of Blaenavon has also achieved World Heritage status. It is the best-preserved example of a traditional South Wales iron-making town and is home to the National Mining Museum of Wales, where visitors, with a real miner for a guide, can descend 300 feet underground to see the conditions in which thousands of men worked at the coal face.
  • Fancy a spot of bog snorkeling? Llanwrtyd Wells is the smallest town in the UK, but it is the capital of festivals. Not only does the town host the World Bog Snorkeling championship each August, but it is also home to the Real Ale Wobble festival, which combines mountain biking with drinking beer, and the Man Versus Horse Marathon (June).
  • Visit Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, known in English as “St Mary’s Church in a hollow of the white hazel near to the rapid whirlpool and St Tysil’s Church of the red cave”. It’s the longest place name and the longest railway station name in Europe.
