Wales: Compact Country Overflowing with Stunning Nature

Thanks to its wonderful mountain ranges, beaches and rural countryside, you will struggle to find a country that is as naturally beautiful as Wales. Behind its looks, you will discover a nation that boasts a rich history – something that can be seen at the various museums and ancient monuments that populate the land. Wales is also not short of attractions for the more modern traveller, with Cardiff – the country’s capital city – a thriving metropolis bursting with shops, nightlife options and points of interest.

Nature to Explore

With an array of beaches, forests, mountains and geologic formations, Wales is delightfully diverse in its nature. As the highest mountain in the country, Snowdon is a great starting point. Situated within the awe-inspiring Snowdonia National Park, Snowdon stands at 3,560 feet – which also makes it higher than any mountain in England! If you are in search of something a little less exhilarating, a visit to the Gower Peninsula in Swansea – with stunning beaches and superb countryside views – is highly recommended. This peninsula also features Rhossili Bay, where you will find iconic landscapes such as Worms Head and three miles of gloriously golden sands. Another famous area of natural beauty in Wales is Great Orme. This world-famous limestone headland is positioned next to Llandudno, and offers an abundance of nature to explore atop its mini-mountain formation. And if you want to take in a wealth of tranquil sights such as magnificent forests, waterfalls and mountains, a ride on the historic Ffestiniog Railway is a relaxing – and splendid – way of doing so when in Wales.

History to Learn

Wales is certainly a suitable destination option if history is your thing. From awe-inspiring castles to world-class museums, the country is inhabited by plenty of culture throughout. Speaking of castles, those that should not be missed include Caernarfon Castle and Harlech Castle – the former provides striking architecture dating back to 1284, while the imposing latter was also completed in the 13th century. Along with restaurants, shops and even hotel choices, Portmeirion Village – thanks to its wondrous Italian-inspired architecture that was the setting for the cult British television classic, The Prisoner – is popular with many for a day out in Wales. As well as many other countless history-centric attractions worth visiting – including St. David’s Cathedral, Tredegar House and the National Showcaves Centre for Wales – the country is also home to a large choice of museums. One of which is the Big Pit National Coal Museum. Free to enter, here you can learn the fascinating history of the industry by exploring a real coal mine at 300 feet underground. Other museums to add to the to-do list are the National Museum Cardiff, St Fagans National History Museum and the National Roman Legion Museum.

Attractions to Experience

A trip to Wales means that there will be plenty of contemporary things to do – no matter which area of the country you are staying in! Now while there are far too many to highlight in a single paragraph, there are plenty of valued attractions that deserve the spotlight. The Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo in Begelly, for example, is one of the best activities available in the country. Combining a zoo, farm and funfair all in one place, this award-winning attraction is an ideal family destination. Further theme park-type fun can be had at the exciting GreenWood Forest Park in Y Felinheli. And if you are a thrill seeker, how about trying out Zip World in Bethesda? This zip wire is not only the longest in the northern hemisphere, but it is also the fastest on the planet! Oh, and the Doctor Who Experience Cardiff Bay is a must-visit if you are a fan of the long-running television series.

Cities to Visit

Now while there are many points of interest that are spread across the country, there are plenty of centralised places to visit when travelling to Wales. This is perhaps best emphasised by Cardiff, which is a capital, port and the largest city in the nation all rolled up into one. And with countless shopping options, regular shows and live sport, popular attractions, and diverse restaurant choices, it is little wonder that plenty book their hotels and base their stay in this area of south Wales. Positioned either side of Cardiff are Newport and Swansea, with both cities featuring their own enticements of a similar vein. In addition, the north of Wales is not lacking in terms of places worth considering when travelling around the country. The seaside resort of Llandudno is one such example, with it offering a fabulous promenade, great views, pristine beaches and one of the UK’s most highly regarded piers.
