Wales
From Swansea to Llandudno, YHA has a fantastic selection of hostels for comfy, low-cost accommodation all over Wales. Whether you're taking a city break in Cardiff, exploring Snowdonia or taking a seaside family holiday in Wales, we have welcoming hostels in beautiful locations ready to make your break unforgettable. Wales' peaks and valleys make for dramatic scenery, and it's become known as a walker's paradise. Its three national parks - Snowdonia, the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast - offer wildly different landscapes, each with their own character and cultural heritage, and are perfect for exploring on foot or by bike. The Welsh seaside resorts are also legendary, with towns like Llandudno and Tenby providing stunning backdrops for fun in the sun. Alternatively, why not visit Cardiff or Swansea for a city break with a difference? YHA's wide selection of hostels makes it easy to arrange cheap holidays to Wales!
Expert Views: 
<p><strong>Five free things to do in Wales</strong></p> <p><strong>The Cardiff Story<br /> </strong>Learn all about the Welsh capital's heritage at this exhibition, learning how it went from a small market town in the 14th century to the bustling metropolis it is today. This fantastic array of photographs and historical artefacts is a fun and educational day out for visitors of all ages.</p> <p><strong>Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal<br /> </strong>Considered by many to be Britain's most picturesque waterway, the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal runs for 35 miles through the Usk Valley from Brecon to Five Locks. It's the perfect place for a long walk or bike ride on a family holiday in Wales, and well worth bringing a camera along to snap the stunning surroundings.</p> <p><strong>Coity Castle<br /> </strong>Built by one of the legendary Twelve Knights of Glamorgan, this Norman castle near Bridgend remains a magnificent sight despite its ruined state. Kids will love taking a walk around the crumbling walls and towers, imagining the days it was filled with knights and soldiers planning heroic deeds!</p> <p><strong>National Roman Legion Museum<br /> </strong>Discover what archaeologists have unearthed from Caerlon in Gwent, which once served as the base of the second Augustan Legion. As well as the weaponry and armour on display, you can take a stroll through the beautiful Roman Garden and see the remains of the most well-preserved amphitheatre in Britain.</p> <p><strong>Llandudno Pier<br /> </strong>There's no better way to experience a seaside holiday than walking along a pier, and Llandudno has the longest one in Wales. The slot machines, ice creams and candyfloss may not be free, but you don't need them to enjoy this beautiful pier and its stunning coastal town.</p>
