If you're looking for a holiday in the UK, taking a trip to Wales (or a different part if you already live in Wales) is a great idea. You can discover something for everyone, whether you're someone who enjoys going shopping or who loves the outdoors. There are cities and towns, including the UK's smallest city, as well as plenty of coastline, mountains and other landscapes to explore. When you take a trip to Wales, you can choose to experience the country in different ways...

Take a Luxury Break

Wales is a fantastic choice of destination if you're looking for a little luxury. There are some excellent luxury hotels, both in cities and in country locations, as well as spas, 5-star restaurants, golf resorts, and more. Some of the top hotels, resorts and country houses in Wales include The Vale Resort near Cardiff, Bodysgallen Hall and Spa in Snowdonia and the Celtic Manor Resort close to Newport. You can also seek out restaurants with Michelin stars, of which there are currently six in Wales. They include Beach House in Oxwich Bay, Gower and Restaurant James Sommerin in Penarth.

Get Active Outdoors

If you love being outdoors and getting active, Wales is the perfect place for you. Whether you choose to explore the coast or inland, there's so much for you to see and do. Wales is home to three National Parks: Snowdonia, the Brecon Beacons and Pembrokeshire Coast. They offer up mountains, coastline and places to walk, cycle, kayak, surf and even swim. Outside of these parks, there's plenty more to explore up and down the country. However you like to get active, you can find exciting places to enjoy the outdoors and see what Wales has to offer.

Go Camping

Another way to spend time outdoors is to go camping. While some people much prefer the comfort of a nice hotel or B&B, camping can be an exciting way to spend time in Wales too. One way to get the best of both worlds is to find camping facilities in a holiday parks. Some options like Lyons Holiday Parks offer pitches for both touring caravans and tents, so you have somewhere to settle in for your holiday. You can benefit from facilities such as electric and water supplies, toilet and shower blocks, security, washing-up stations and more.

Take a Road Trip or Tour

Wales has just one motorway, but plenty of other roads to explore. A road trip around the country is a great way to see it, or you could also consider travelling around Wales by train. You could drive around yourself or you could join a tour from a travel company if you're looking for others to travel with. Some trips are suitable for doing in a day, while others could last ten days or more. Visit Wales offers some touring routes for inspiration in their The Wales Way collection, which includes three main routes for seeing different parts of Wales.

Explore the Capital

Cardiff is the capital of Wales, and it's a great city to visit. There are many different things to do, allowing you to find something that you'll enjoy. If you like to shop, there's the option of the St David's shopping centre or you can explore the arcades for some independent shops. History lovers can visit Cardiff Castle or Castell Coch, spend some time at the National Museum Cardiff or go to St Fagans National Museum of History. Cardiff is a good place for nights out too, with everything from restaurants and pubs to bars and clubs. You can also experience some theatre at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay or smaller places like Chapter and The Gate.

Immerse Yourself in Welsh Culture

The Welsh culture can be interesting to explore too. You might think that you've picked up something about what it means to be Welsh from watching Gavin and Stacey. However, there's a lot more to Wales, both past and present. If you want to know more about Wales and its culture and history, attending a festival or event is a good idea. The National Eisteddfod is a great opportunity to experience some Welsh culture. Held in the first week of August, it celebrates the culture of Wales with music, dance, visual arts, literature and more, and plenty of competition.
