Pictures of Wales

Wales is a country that is full of charm, passion, and intrigue. Wherever you visit in the country, you will be treated to something very different but equally as beautiful as the last location.

There is such variety in the country to be admired, for example images of lively modern day cities are contrasted by the ruins of dominant and imposing castles of days gone by. To show you what we mean, here are some of our favourite pictures of Wales.

Mount Snowdon

Mount Snowdon is the highest mountain in England or Wales at 1,085m! Make it to the summit and you’ll be afforded spectacular views over Wales, into England and Ireland. A stunning location for an amble around the North of the country.

An easier way of making it to the top of Mount Snowdon is by the Snowdonia Steam Train. Experience great views and listen to stories of King Arthur as you make your way to the top, great for taking the weight off your feet.

Rhossili Bay on the Gower peninsula is a great sandy beach stretching to three miles in length. The beach is perfect for a range of watersports including surfing, as well as beach games, or simply relaxing in the sun. It’s no surprise that this beach was voted the best beach in the UK and the third best in Europe in 2013.
