Experience our epic shores on vacation in Wales

Find your epic…deep in the soul of Wales

Bordered by England on the East and the Irish Sea on the West, Wales is jewel in the British crown; a mystical destination with an epic past. The country with more castles per square mile than anywhere in the world, Wales offers endless intrigue with its storied medieval history and legends of King Arthur, the druids and the Celtic saints. A vibrant Celtic culture lives on in this nation where Welsh, one of Europe’s oldest surviving language, is commonly spoken alongside English.

In 2018, we’re inviting you to discover Wales' epic shores. This is our Year of the Sea. Celebrate the coast and dramatic seascapes, you’ll pass hundreds of beaches, harbors, inlets and islands – while watching porpoises play and bottlenose dolphins dance in the distance.   Make this year the time to try a new coastal activity – like kayaking, paddle boarding or coasteering. With a unique culture and the finest food and drink, Wales offers some of the UK’s most exciting coastal experiences of 2018.
