There are so many ways Wales will enchant you
From castles to coalmines, Wales is steeped in history, while the Arthurian legend also has strong links to its stunning landscape. Today’s Wales is just as fascinating. It has three national Parks, over 600 castles and more than 40 Blue Flag beaches.

The craggy Pembrokeshire coastline is home to the exhilarating activity of coasteering, and there are many opportunities for abseiling, climbing, surfing, diving, fishing and golf.

With the Eisteddfod, Brecon Jazz Festival and Wakeboard Music Festival, Wales is a cultural oasis for everyone.
