UK Holidays, Short Breaks & Weekends in Wales

Winter and the festive season are upon us. The shops in our towns and cities are stocked with gifts while colourful twinkling lights dance along the streets. Looking for a Christmas shopping break? We'll show you the best places for city shopping, quirky independent shops, festive Christmas markets, family friendly winter wonderlands and outdoor ice skating. It's the most wonderful time of the year, so wrap up and take a bracing coastal or countryside walk. Then reward yourself with a glass or mug of something restoring beside an open fire in a pub. Perfect.
Try something new this Christmas and pack for Wales.
