Wales - A land of history, beauty and dynamic culture

Wales - A land of history, beauty and dynamic culture

Wales boasts a distinct identity, steeped in history and modern culture alike. From dynamic cities to breathtaking countryside - including three national parks - there is much to captivate the visitor here. Magnificent mountains, lush valleys and a coastline to rival that of anywhere in the world.
Snowdonia is the largest and perhaps the most famous of Wales’s three national parks. Thousands travel to this beautiful landscape to visit its lakes, mountain bike trails and stand on the summit of the country’s highest peak, Mount Snowdon. Whether travelling on foot or by train on the historic Snowdon Mountain Railway, it’s well worth the 1085m climb, offering stunning views across the sea to Ireland.
