Castles and Coast
Explore Parks, Hiking Paths and Stone Citadels
Wales is rife with fortresses, including Cardiff Castle, built on the site of a Roman fort, and 13th-century Conwy, where you can climb turrets and walk on castle walls. Feeling fit? The 870-mile Wales Coast Path meanders past beaches, cliffs, wildlife habitats, villages, and Swansea’s Dylan Thomas Centre, dedicated to the poet. Brecon Beacons National Park offers photogenic waterfalls, while Snowdonia features Britain’s third tallest peak.
