UK Spring break ideas

Spring – it’s our signature season. From St David’s Day on 1 March to the end of May, this is a great time to visit Welsh cities and castles or go walking, cycling, horse riding, sailing or surfing. We can’t promise the sun will shine. We can’t pretend the footpaths, tracks and trails won’t be muddy. But we can guarantee you birdsong, lambs, wildflowers and glorious daffodils.

Wildlife watching tours

Discover whales, dolphins and puffins with an experienced guide.


My top place to visit in spring and summer would have to be Skomer, a Mecca for thousands of puffins, gulls and manx shearwaters. The Marine Nature Reserve around the island is just as rich. It’s truly memorable.
