What makes Wales such an excellent holiday destination?

conwy shops and street
This is a big question with so many answers but we will try to keep this nice and snappy for you…

Wales has a long line of rich history and culture as well as breathtaking landscapes which you can see quite easily see across the whole country.

Wales is teeming with magnificent ancient castles – there are roughly over 600 castles in total! One of our favourite castles is the fairytale castle, Castell Coch (also known as the Red Castle).

Wales has a fascinating history spanning from the Celts to the Roman invasion, then the Norman Invasion, and the opening of the Great Western Railway to Miner’s Strikes and so much more. There are many caves, castles, manor houses, and mines to explore on your family days out in Wales.

History aside, it’s time to make way for all of the stunning natural wonders in Wales. You must visit Aber Falls, Brecon Beacons National Park, and Llyn Peninsula while you’re in Wales, they are truly magnificent. And let’s not forget about all those adorable animals too. Did you know there are more sheep than people in Wales?!

If you’re an avid hiker you’ll already be familiar with Snowdonia National Park – it’s the tallest mountain in England and Wales! There are many attractions within Snowdonia from the Snowdonia Mountain Railway to Surf Snowdonia and the famous Snowdonia Zipwire at Zip World!

And if you’re a surfer or general beach lover then you may have already visited one of the most beautiful coastlines in the UK, the Pembrokeshire Coast! Although the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is the smallest National Park in the UK, this area covers 39% of Pembrokeshire County and is home to unspoiled scenery, abundant wildlife and sandy beaches. And as you may have guessed, there are so many things to do here from sea safaris to hiking, surfing, and more.

All in all, Wales is a majestic place full of adventure and is a must-visit if you are planning a family staycation in the UK.
