Jump into Wales, great scenery, historic monuments and adventures

Wales is a place of natural drama, from the country’s beaches to walking its mountain ranges. The nation’s history is told through its ancient monuments. The bold 21st century Wales is there for everyone to enjoy on a short break in one of Wales’ cities to explore or get active in this wonderful natural countryside.

Ffestiniog Railway and Powis Castle

Ffestiniog Railway and Powis Castle

Powis Medieval castle rising dramatically above the celebrated garden. As the days get warmer and the evenings get lighter it’s a real joy to get outdoors and see our garden springing back into life. From March through to June you’ll be treated to a fantastic show of spring colour at Powis.

Take a leisurely boat ride at the World Heritage site Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, dare you cross the stream in the sky? And can you do it without looking down?

White Water Rafting at the National White Water Centre means taking on the challenging Afon Tryweryn; you and your crew will be swept through crashing waves and boulder strewn rapids on this fast flowing Welsh mountain river.
