The Snowdonia National Park, was created as the 2nd National Park  in Britain and the largest in Wales.  It covers 840 square miles of the highest mountains and breathtaking coastline.

Across the Menai Straits lies the "Mother Island" of Anglesey, one of the largest in The British Isles. 

Pembrokeshire
in the far West is the location of the only true coastal national park in The United Kingdom, home to St Davids, the smallest city in Britain.

The 19 mile long Gower Peninsula in the South West is the first designated area of natural beauty in Britain, and boasts some of Europe's most unspoilt beaches.

Spend some time in Cardiff, capital of the nation, once the most important port exporting Welsh coal and now amongst Europe's top cultural centres.

Within easy reach are the breathtaking Brecon Beacons and The Wye Valley, to the North and East.

Some thirty five miles West of Cardiff is Swansea, the second city "By The Sea", birthplace of Wales literary giant Dylan Thomas, who described the place where he grew up, and wrote some of his best work as "My ugly, lovely town".
                                                   

CASTLES .... CASTLES ..... AND MORE - CASTLES!

In Wales (If you have the time!) you can visit 641 castles, with "The Iron Ring" built by the English King Edward I in the 13th century, remaining the finest examples of medieval fortified buildings on Earth, all of them UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
