Immerse yourself in history

Embrace the outdoors

  • Pembrokeshire Coast National Park: Kayak along the dramatic coastline, explore hidden coves and beaches, or spot playful dolphins and seals.

Unleash your inner archaeologist

  • National Museum of Wales: Delve into Wales’s rich past through interactive exhibits, fascinating artefacts, and dinosaur skeletons. Explore the history of mining, see Roman treasures, and learn about Welsh life through the ages.

Experience the living culture

  • Eisteddfod Festivals: Immerse yourself in the vibrant world of Welsh language and culture at these annual festivals. Witness poetry competitions, traditional music performances, and lively celebrations of Welsh heritage.

Beyond the main attractions

  • Zip World: Take your adrenaline levels to new heights with zip lines, bounce nets, and underground adventures in abandoned slate mines.
  • Surf Snowdonia: Catch a wave, even if you’ve never surfed before, at this world-first inland surfing lagoon.

Foodie Delights

  • Sample Welsh cakes: Warm yourself up with these delicious fruit-filled pastries, perfect with a cup of tea.
  • Try a “cawl”: This hearty stew made with lamb, vegetables, and herbs is a true taste of Wales.
