Wales

A beautiful coastline, unspoilt landscape and an abundance of historic sites, there’s so much to see and do whilst staying at one of our caravan parks or holiday parks in Wales. Here’s our guide to the Top Ten Things To Do whilst on one of our caravan holidays in Wales.

1. See dolphins along the Marine Heritage Coast

The beautiful unspoilt stretch of coastline near New Quay was Britain’s first offshore Marine Heritage Coast. Here colonies of bottlenose dolphins rub shoulders with Atlantic grey seals and harbour porpoises and many species of sea-bird nest on the cliff-tops. This rich variety of sea-life can be seen close-up on a boat trip from New Quay harbour.

2. All aboard a steam train

The Great Little Trains of Wales are a very special way of seeing some of the best scenery in Wales. There are ten narrow-gauge steam railways across the country, all of them have in common the charm of old-time steam trains with plenty of polished paintwork and brass. The Ffestiniog Railway is the oldest independent railway company running from the slate quarries of Blaenau Ffestiniog down to the harbour at Porthmadog. The Snowdon Mountain Railway is the only public rack and pinion railway in the UK and has been taking passengers to the top of Snowdon for over 100 years. Spectacular views opens up as the train climbs the highest mountain in England and Wales. The Vale of Rheidol line climbs through a verdant valley for nearly 12 miles from Aberystwyth on the coast to Devil’s Bridge, while the Talyllyn Railway is the world’s first preserved railway and was built originally to carry slate from quarries in the hills to Cardigan Bay.

3. Climb Snowdon

At 3,650 feet (1085 metres) Snowdon is the highest peak in England and Wales. There are several routes to its summit from the popular and straightforward Pyg Track and Llanberis Path to the more challenging Watkin Path and Crib Goch route. The most celebrated route is the Snowdon Horseshoe which takes in all the major peaks of the Snowdon massif. For those wanting to take it a bit easier there is a train which takes visitors to the summit. As a result the summit can be busy in summer. If you want to get off the beaten track there are some fantastic walks in the surrounding countryside.

4. Visit a Mediterranean village on the Welsh coast

Portmeirion was built in the 1920s by architect Clough Williams-Ellis and it represents his fantasy of a classical Italianate village in the Mediterranean, transplanted to a peninsula on an estuary on Wales’ northwest coast. Here you will find pastel-painted buildings with shuttered windows, a grand piazza, and surrounding woods and gardens filled with exotic plants. Portmeirion came to prominence when it was used as the set for cult Sixties TV series The Prisoner.

5. Step back in history to a World Heritage Site

The finest castles in Wales, in a land full of them, can be found in a small area of North Wales. Indeed, the castles of Beaumaris, Caernarfon, Conwy, and Harlech have been classified as a World Heritage Site. Built in the 13th century by King Edward I of England they are all impressive, well preserved and great examples of military architecture. Beaumaris, overlooking the Menai Strait, is the largest. Caernarfon Castle also overlooks the Menai Strait and is the scene of many important ceremonial events. Conway Castle offers dramatic views across the Conway estuary and Harlech Castle was the scene of the siege which inspired the song Men of Harlech, sung by Welsh people across the world.

6. Walk across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct

Just outside Llangollen lies the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, the world’s tallest canal-boat bridge, and World Heritage Site. Built by Thomas Telford it carries the Llangollen Canal over the River Dee, more than 100 feet above the valley. A popular short walk takes you along the canal towpath from Froncysyllte, across the aqueduct, to the canal basin full of colourful narrow boats at Trevor.

7. Head deep underground in a slate mine

Blaenau Ffestiniog is the former ‘slate capital of Wales’ with a strange, compelling beauty. Screes of broken slate tumble down steep-sided mountains, mixing with Snowdonia’s natural grandeur. You can glimpse into Blaenau’s unique history at the Llechwedd Slate Caverns, which are still being worked to this day. Tours take you deep underground to explore the world of the Victorian slate miner from the ‘town that roofed the world’.

8. Have fun on the best beach in Britain

Rhossili Bay on the Gower peninsula has received many accolades over the years and recently was voted the third best beach in Europe (and best beach in Britain) in a TripAdvisor survey. Rhossili Bay is a three-mile stretch of white sand. It has Worm’s Head at one end – a small tidal island and the most westerly tip of Gower – and at the other lies the small tidal island of Burry Holms. Along the beach stands a solitary building – the Old Rectory, a house dating to the 1850s which is now owned by the National Trust, and a ship wreck can be seen on the sand at low tide.

9. Go underground at the Big Pit

Big Pit was a working coalmine until it closed in 1980. Now the National Coal Museum, Big Pit is home to an impressive collection of mining machinery and memorabilia. It’s not just about what coal mining was like for the workers but about the dignity and pride of local people and the wider background of why the coal boom happened when it did, and how what came out of the Valleys changed the world. The highlight of the visit is the hour-long underground tour, led by ex-miners, which takes you down in the pit cage to walk through an underground labyrinth of roadways to the coal face.

10. Visit the Garden of Wales

Not without reason is Carmarthenshire known as The Garden of Wales; its rolling landscape contains some excellent gardens and parklands including the flagship National Botanic Garden of Wales. Situated in the unspoiled Tywi Valley, it features Mediterranean flora as well as typical Welsh species. At the centre of this garden, created in celebration of the Millennium, sits Sir Norman Foster’s Great Glasshouse, the world’s largest single-span ‘greenhouse’.
