Travelling around the UK can be a wonderful experience. There is so much to do and so many different and fascinating places to visit here on our home turf. In particular, the beautiful country of Wales is somewhere that you shouldn’t pass up the chance to visit if you get it. Read on to find out why.
Wales is known as a truly green and pleasant land, and one of the first things about this location that you will notice is how lush and gorgeous it is. Especially in the countryside around the Brecon Beacons. Think rolling hills, tiny crofter’s cottages dotted through the landscape, and big wide open spaces.
If that wasn’t enough, there are a lot of nature-focused activities that you can do in Wales as well. One such activity is feeding the Red Kites and other birds at Gigrin.
You get to sit in a comfortable hide just feet away from these amazing, and until recently, endangered birds of prey. While the event organiser put our food for them. Then you are treated to a majestic display of these creatures feeding and interacting with one another right up close. It’s really quite spectacular and recommended for any bird lover or nature enthusiasts alike.
There is also lots to do and see in Wales, that is fun. Which makes it a great destination for the fun-loving and those with kids alike.
Why not visit the Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo in Kilgetty? Where you can see a zebra and ride a bumper car all in one afternoon! Or if you are feeling a little more adventurous why not try the tree top assault course at Go Ape in Port Talbot?
Now, while you may think of Wales as being a rural idyll, that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a little luxury and pampering while you are there either.
After all, there are plenty of golf breaks in South Wales available where you can combine time on the course with a little relaxation in the spa and some fine dining, just to round things off.
However, if you are under the impression that Wales is just a collection of little villages dotted about the countryside you be wrong! Remember there is the wonderful and metropolitan city of Cardiff to explore. Some of the highlights of which include the Dr. Who experience, and the amazing Wales Millennium Centre venue. A place that hosts all sorts of productions from Opera to comedy.
But the culture isn’t limited to the urban areas of Wales, it, in fact, permeates through many of the smaller town and villages. In particular, Hay on Wye is famous for its many books shops. Some of which specialize in a single genre such as Murder Mystery, and others which cover everything from Ancient Philosophy to the Occult.
There is also a two-week literary festival held in Hay in may every year. Where you will find members of the literati giving talks and signing their works. Alongside performances by stand-up comics and famous musical acts.
