When a country’s border is predominantly coastline, it’s no wonder there is a fascinating coastal heritage bursting with myths and legend. You’ll find pirate trails (think ‘Black Bart’ the designer of the skull and crossbones or Captain Henry Morgan) and plenty of ancient castles to explore. Hear tales of wizards and dragons told in one of the oldest living languages in Europe. The Welsh language is spoken by 20% of the population and is seen, with English, on all signs. 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 in gastropubs and country cafés as Welsh chefs serve up regionally-sourced produce - abundant seafood, tender Welsh lamb, dry-aged black beef and a delicious array of cheeses. Along the stunningly beautiful Pembrokeshire coast there are many seaside pubs where fresh fish, mussels, scallops and shrimp can be savoured with harbour views. Kayak with the seals or go dolphin spotting.
Venture inland through mountainous landscapes and national parks to discover heritage rail lines, steam trains and adventure activities intertwined with Wales’s slate-mining past. Explore the heart of Wales with a choice of gentle walks, the wildest being Glaslyn Nature Reserve where you can see moorland birds, red kites and falcons, or a walkers’ paradise in Snowdonia National Park. Let’s not forget Cardiff, a vibrant, cultural city with deep roots in the past and where literary legend Roald Dahl was born.
This city is bursting with historical arcades and modern shopping centres, museums, galleries and Cardiff castle. Enjoy stunning views of the city and surrounding countryside from the top of the keep.
The colourful walled town has arguably the best beach in Europe, perfect for a walking tour. The island of St Catherine’s can be reached by foot at low tide.
Explore the 12th century castle before taking a boat ride out to visit the cormorants, puffins and guillemots on the offshore island. Walk a section of the 299km Pembrokeshire Coast Path which covers limestone cliffs sandstone bays, volcanic headlands and beaches.
Drive through the National Park and view the magnificent Harlech Castle, perched on a rocky outcrop. Step back in time and embark on a narrow-gauge steam train past rivers and castles. Climb more than 700 feet to the peaks of Snowdon, and visit the pretty village of Beddgelert.
Walk through the narrow streets of this medieval walled town with a castle perfect for exploring with ramparts, towers, dark passages and dungeons. St Mary’s church is also worth a visit with its Byzantine processional cross.
Trek out, off the beaten track and be rewarded with dramatic views over the glistening ocean and stretches of white sand lying between black cliff faces, topped with emerald green.
This lovely town is set on a sweeping seafront with an energetic promenade and traditional seaside pier, and perched on the hillside are the remnants of a massive Iron Age fortress. It’s a perfect spot to stay as you head up the coast.
Stop at these small villages on your drive around Pembrokeshire. The Town Hall houses the Fishguard Tapestry, 100 feet long and admired as the Last Invasion Tapestry, similar to the Bayeaux Tapestry. St David’s has a cathedral which is a beautiful example of religious architecture in the Middle Ages.
Cross the moats to conquer the castle’s defensive system through hidden passageways and obstacles without getting caught by Gilbert de Clare, the castle’s owner in the 13th century.
You’re 500 feet in the air going down at 100mph!! The same guys have also set up Bounce Below, three underground trampolines connected with slides and ladders lit with psychedelic lights.
With over 600 castles, you’re never too far away from history. Climb spiral staircases to the top of Conwy Castle’s turrets and towers, and enjoy singing or poetry at Raglan Castle.
