Holidays in Wales

Wales is a world-class destination: rugged mountains, stunning sandy beaches, beautiful lakes, forest, hills, rolling farmland, pretty villages, bustling towns and a proud ancient heritage.

Throughout Wales, there's plenty of quality accommodation for all budgets, from cosy rural cottages and plush hotels to luxury campsites and bunk barns, plus an exciting range of activities, from terrific rambling options on scenic trails across rugged landscapes to coasteering on an adventure holiday and family wildlife discovery opportunities.

Wales has World-class Mountain Biking facilities at centres such as Coed y Brenin, Bike Park Wales and Antur Stiniog, as well as the 870 miles of the Wales Coast Path, which is the longest continuous path along a nation’s coastline.

How to travel by train and ferry to Wales

The major cities of South Wales can all be reached by train from London Paddington with First Great Western - to Newport it takes about 1hr 50 mins, Cardiff is about 2hrs and you can reach Swansea in just under 3hrs. For North Wales, travel from London Euston to Chester then take the Arriva Train to Bangor. For mid Wales (including the Brecon Beacons), take the Arriva train up from Newport to Abervagenny. If you wish to travel to Southwest Wales, travel to Newport, then take the train to Milford Haven.

The Cambrian Lines are two train lines that run through specatcular scenery in the heart of Mid Wales. The 'Main Line' runs from Shrewsbury to Aberystwyth and the 'Coast Line' (which splits off from the Main Line at Machynlleth) runs up the northern coast of Cardigan Bay from Machynlleth to Pwllheli.
