Top 5 Reasons to Visit Wales

By Russ Pooley

Ok I know what you’re thinking. You can get a flight to just about anywhere nowadays. You can visit places you’ve never even heard of and see cultures you didn’t know existed, so why stay in the UK. Easy, why travel miles when you have natural beauty and plenty of attractions right on your doorstep.

Wales is the gem of the UK. Here are the top five reasons to visit.

Whether you like mountain climbing or just want some breathtaking views, Wales has it all. Mount Snowdon is the highest point in Wales and offers stunning views across the countryside. And if you can’t be bothered climbing up to witness them, take the Snowdon Mountain railway and relax as you take in the beauty of Snowdonia.


As long as the weather is good, and let’s face it there’s always a bit of a risk there, you can enjoy the perfect beach holiday in Wales. Barafundle Bay in Pembrokeshire was recently named Britain’s best beach.


If it’s a bit of history you’re after then this is the place to be. There are hundreds of castles in Wales, not to mention cathedrals and churches.


Wales is home to plenty of wildlife from dolphins to badgers and with its fabulous countryside it is home to some great country walks. Get a taste of the great outdoors and enjoy nature as it’s supposed to be.


Of course, Wales is not all about nature. If it’s a bustling city with a thriving nightlife you’re after there is plenty to choose from. Try Cardiff or Swansea for example where you’ll find great restaurants, swanky bars and funky clubs.

Wales, what more could you want?
