Embark on a road trip and discover rich Celtic culture and stunning medieval castles perched atop of craggy cliffs, hike up stunning Mount Snowdon, or experience city live in the Welsh capital, Cardiff.

The Best Places to Visit in Wales

Cardiff
Cardiff
Spend a night or two in Cardiff and you’ll find a buzzing bar and pub scene, awesome Victorian shopping arcades, and a Roman castle on a hill overlooking the city below. During summer you’ll be able to sun yourself on the quayside, whereas winter sees rugby season fill out Principality Stadium. 
Pembrokeshire Wales
Pembrokeshire
Think of Pembrokeshire’s Coastal National Park as the UK’s very own ‘Great Ocean Road’: scattered with destitute yet gorgeous beaches, dramatic cliff formations, plenty of opportunities for water sports, and friendly villages such as Tenby you can stop the night in: the perfect recipe for an epic road trip. 
 
Portmerion
Quirky, quaint and rather quite peculiar, Portmerion was built by an eccentric, artistic millionaire throughout the 20th Century. Inspired by European villages and cities, it’s scattered with colourful cottages and all manner of bizarre and charming nooks and crannies. Throw in a huge beach and the annual Festival No. 6, one of the UK’s best music festivals, and you’re on to something unmissable!
Snowdonia Wales
Snowdonia National Park
Head north after your Pembrokeshire roadie and reach Snowdonia. This National Park is home to Wales’ highest mountain, Yr Wyddfa, more commonly known as Snowdon. The most ruggedly action-packed bit of Wales has towering mountains and a wild coastline and it’s also renowned for its fantastic foodie scene.

How do I get to Wales?

Wales is the perfect add on to a UK or continental Europe trip, but also makes for a holiday in itself. Flights are available to the capital city, Cardiff, via London and Manchester airports. Both of these airports are accessible in just a couple of hours by rail or road.

Do I need a visa to visit Wales?

Wales is part of the United Kingdom and so follows the same entry requirements in terms of passports/visitor visas – Australians can stay for up to six months as tourists, and won’t need to apply for a visa in advance of arriving. For information on gaining an employment visa for Wales, speak to one of our travel experts.
