Wales’ Great Attractions

In Snowdonia and the other national parks, such as the mountainous Brecon Beacons and coastal Pembrokeshire, you can engage in many recreational activities, including hiking and cycling, as well as some adventure sports.
Once you’ve had your fill of outdoor pursuits, step back in time by visiting some of the castles that are dotted around the country. The stunningly well-preserved castle in Caernarfon, which dates back to the 11th century, is one of the best in Europe and is a definite must-see. Another good option is Conwy Castle, which is located just 30 minutes from Caernarfon in North Wales. This castle is a World Heritage site and dates back to the 13th century.

In June, listen to the world’s best classical singers as they try to win the prestigious Cardiff Singer of the Year competition. Note that this event takes place every two years. At Christmas, towns and cities across the country are transformed into winter wonderlands, with ice-rinks and fairs.
