Discover Wales

For a small country, Cymru as the locals call it, packs a heck of a lot in: spectacular land and seascapes, action and adventure from easy strolls to white knuckle rides, funky B&Bs and fantastically tasty food and drink. Whatever the time of year and whatever you’re looking for – a weekend break for two, fun for the whole family or a serious shot of adrenaline – Wales has it all.

In May, the new Wales Coast Path opened, making Wales the first country in the world to have a national trail running around its entire border.
