Wales has mountains and coal mines, a fantastic love of rugby to equal our own and a passion for singing. In other words, it is proudly unique. Conway, Caernarfon and Harlech castles will transport you back in time, and the landscape is dotted with places connected to one of Britain’s most enduring legends - King Arthur and his knights of the Round Table. You’ll eat regally too - seafood is abundant, Welsh lamb and beef are famous, and there is a delicious array of cheeses. North Wales, including the Snowdonia National Park, is a walkers paradise but the market town of Llangollen with its famous canal is a place that can be savoured from the tranquil waterway as well, in central Wales you’ll find the wilderness of the Brecon Beacons to explore on foot or bike, but there’s also the book mad town of Hay-on-WYE. To the west lie Aberysthwyth and its steam train, the stunningly beautiful Pembrokeshire coast and the National Botanic gardens of Wales which have the world’s largest single-span glasshouse. > Click here to view all of our HOT UK and Europe deals Enquire Now First name* Last name* Email* Phone How can we help?
