From North Wales to South Wales enjoy beautiful scenery and UNESCO World Heritage sites. Making Wales a must-visit destination.

Wales has over 600 castles, which leads many people to call the country the “castle capital of the world.” Try to make time to visit the gorgeous Caernarfon Castle.

Wales has a lot of legends associated with it and its history, from dragons to magic swords to holy drinking vessels. Including Merlin, King Arthur and the Holy Grail.


The Welsh language dates back thousands of years, and is likely the oldest language in Britain. Tolkien also based one of his versions of the Elvish language on Old Welsh.

Wales has amazing scenery, from rolling hills to coastlines and roads that are often littered with sheep. Try visiting Snowdonia National Park and explore the amazing hiking trails.

You can do things like surfing and whitewater rafting in frigid mountain water or you can also fly down a mountainside on a bike or hurtle over old quarries on zip lines.

Charming Towns

Little Welsh towns with a unique history – like the ones you'll find in Snowdonia – are unbearably cute. With old stone buildings and cozy cafes and pubs.

See the smallest house in Great Britain in Conwy, walk across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, or visit the community of St. Davids and see the 12th-century St Davids Cathedral.

There are not a lot of tourists. Since most tourist to the UK go to places like London and Edinburgh, you'll find many parts of Wales virtually devoid of any tourists.
