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.
