South Wales

Wales has a little of something for everyone. Noted for its breathtaking scenic countryside, hiking and the great outdoors, Wales is also steeped in history and culture.

Welsh is spoken by about a fifth of the population, more common in the North and in rural areas it can be seen on most signs and almost all travel leaflets which are in both languages.

Wales has many castles and fabulous landscapes that can change rapidly from lush rolling hills of greenery to mountain ranges and spectacular lakes. The coastal landscape is also amazing in its diversity and teeming with a wide range of bird life and ocean animals such as seals and dolphins. Wide sandy beaches and numerous coves make it a travellers delight.

In this trip we took a motor home across the Severn Bridge and hugged the coastline all the way to Aberystwyth before turning inland and making our way back towards the midlands. The weather was warm though at times cloudy. This route takes about a week. To follow the coast route we took, use the list on the left hand side of this page.

So which parts would we recommend most? Well the whole trip was an enjoyable experience and we would have liked more time in Cardiff and Swansea amongst other places, rather than just passing through in transit. However, Saundersfoot and Tenby have to rate highly on the list of favourite places in South Wales and the Pembrokeshire coast and countryside was spectacular.

Take a look at each of the places in turn. There are plenty of photographs and information on each location. If you are looking for more specific information about Wales then you might like to take a look at:
