Escorted Tours and Holidays in Wales

 Wales packs quite a punch for a small country, a green and ancient land of rugged mountains, crumbling castles and wild, windswept beaches. Cross over the border from England and you’ll immediately notice the difference: the clustered consonants of the Welsh language are given pride of place on road signs, and the red dragon flutters atop flagpoles. Amongst sleepy valleys dotted with sheep you’ll find cosy pubs, pretty market towns and scenic walking trails, while the cities buzz with an energy and vigour that reflects a renewed sense of national pride.

The revitalised Welsh capital, Cardiff, lures visitors with its famous castle, and second city Swansea is the gateway to the seaside retreat of The Mumbles. The mountains reach their most spectacular heights in Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons, and Wales is also home to some of Britain’s most spectacular coastline. Resort towns such as Portmeirion and Llandudno swell with crowds during summer, while just offshore lie islands rich in wildlife and spiritual significance. But perhaps Wales’s greatest asset is the Welsh people themselves: gregarious, welcoming, musical, rugby-mad and fiercely proud of their distinctive culture and traditions.



Touring Highlights in Wales

  • The dramatic peaks of Snowdonia lure climbers and thrill-seekers from all over the UK, though this picturesque region also has plenty to offer less adventurous travellers, including the historic mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog and the Victorian resort of Betws-y-Coed.
  • The flattened peaks, rolling moors and wooded valleys of Brecon Beacons National Park create some of the most spectacular landscapes in South Wales, criss-crossed by hiking trails and close to the famously bookish town of Hay-on-Wye.
  • The excitement in Cardiff is palpable on the day of a big rugby match at the Millennium Stadium, and the resurgent Welsh capital boasts a magnificent castle, a smart new waterfront and a buzzing nightlife scene.
  • The island of Anglesey is a bastion of Welsh culture, and some 70% of the population speak Welsh as their first language. Anglesey was once a stronghold of the druids, and there are a number of interesting Neolithic sites on the island, along with some delightful little towns and secluded beaches.
  • The wild Pembrokeshire coast is a popular spot for surfing, sea kayaking and scenic walking along the 186-mile-long Pembrokeshire Coast Path.
