Wales Tourist Board

If you want to see the real Britain, you’re going to need to spend some time in Wales. Living and studying in Wales is a great way to get to know our country.

Cardiff is the Welsh capital city and is just 2 hours west of London. There’ll be plenty of parties going on in Cardiff in 2005 – we’re celebrating its Centenary as a city, and 50 years as the Welsh Capital. There’ll be events throughout the year - everything from open-air concerts, street theatre and carnivals to major sporting events.

After spending time exploring the city you’ll definitely need some refreshment. With over 350 pubs, you’ll be spoiled for choice. Don’t forget to sample the local brew Brains SA – and you won’t want to miss the Cardiff club scene.

Away from Cardiff, Wales boasts the highest concentration of castles in Europe. Famed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the mighty 13th century Conwy, Caernarfon and Beaumaris Castles have been astounding their visitors (both friend and foe) for centuries.

Over a quarter of Wales falls within the three National Parks, so it’s not surprising that we do serious scenery, and plenty of adventure. Pembrokeshire is Britain’s only Coastal National Park, and it’s home to our very own home-grown extreme sport – Coasteering. Combining the challenge of rock climbing with the rush of white water kayaking, it’s a pretty special experience.

Further north, Snowdonia National Park is the most mountainous area of Wales. It comes recommended by Sir Edmund Hillary and his Everest-conquering team – they did their training here.

The Brecon Beacons National Park is just an hour’s drive from Cardiff. Expect wild waterfalls, windswept mountains, mysterious valleys and busy market towns. Keep heading north and you’ll get to Llanwrtyd Wells – proud host of the International Bog Snorkelling Championships!
