Visiting Wales soon?

Here’s Where You Should Go!

Nobody {NOBODY!} would disagree with the fact that the Green, Green Grass of home, also knows as Wales, is a beautiful country with plenty of things to see and do. Of course, that only makes it more difficult to plan a trip to this wonderful place. It might be a small country {with a big heart to go with that big Dragon on our flag}, but Wales packs a lot into that small space. So, where should you begin on a journey to this wonderful place? Or if you’re Welsh then what is there left to see?  Here are some of the top spots you should definitely visit in Wales.

Cardiff’s skyline seamlessly blends old and modern architecture together.

Cardiff.

Those of us who are Welsh have probably visited the capital at some point. If you’re not Welsh then you definitely should visit the capital at some point. The important thing to remember is that this city keeps changing as the years go by. Maybe you’ve visited it before, but that doesn’t mean you’ve seen everything there is to see. New visitors should definitely start by admiring some of the amazing architecture that the city has to offer. The Wales Millennium Centre is a modern marvel, but it’s not just aesthetically impressive; you can see fantastic theatrical performances ranging from ballet and musicals to comedy acts.

This city also has an intriguing history. It’s modern and it keeps evolving, but the older architecture is well worth admiring too. The Pierhead Building is the perfect example of this. It’s a piece of Cardiff’s history as an important shipping port; obviously, this is still the case, but there’s something special about seeing the roots of this great city for yourself. There’s so much to see here that you might want to look at serviced apartments in Cardiff Bay. That’ll give a cosy place to stay whilst you take your time soaking in everything this city has to offer.

Powys.

If you’ve had enough of city life then you might want to {read: YOU HAVE TO} observe some of the gorgeous greenery that Wales has to offer. The county of Powys covers a vast area of Wales, and it’s full of many stunning attractions (both natural and manmade). You should definitely explore the Black Mountains. This range of mountains is absolutely spectacular. There are also many wonderful castles that you can explore on walks through the Powys countryside. Castell Dinas is one example. These ruins look mesmerising against the backdrop of hilly Powys. Of course, if you’re looking for something to keep the kids occupied then you might want to check out the Centre for Alternative Technology in Machynlleth. This is a fun place for the whole family.

Mount Snowdon.

It obviously wouldn’t be a proper visit to Wales if you didn’t visit the highest mountain it has to offer…Mount Snowdon. Located in the heart of the breathtaking Snowdonia National Park, hiking up this mountain is a challenge with an enticing reward at the end of it. You’ll be treated to incredible views of the surrounding park…unless you’re as unlucky as Paul who has been up a number of times but never had the views he’s been promised… Admiring the landscape from the peak of Mount Snowdon is an utterly wonderful experience.  Even if you don’t make it to the Summit, there are some amazing walks and Lakes surrounding the area, like Llyn Llydaw I walked to the other day.

So, what are you waiting for…get that holiday/mini break booked and I’ll see you on the Summit!
