A great month to be in Wales. Why? St David's Day of course! But besides that there's plenty to enjoy in Wales as spring peeks its head around the corner...

St David's Day

01 March. A day full of children wearing black 'chimney' hats and shawls. Parades of leeks, daffodils, flags of Saint David and herds of red dragons - on flags of course. All in celebration of the patron saint of Wales, St David.

Anglesey Half Marathon

01 March. A beautiful marathon that gives you the unique chance to cross a traffic-free Menai Bridge. Following the coastal path and past the formidable Beaumaris Castle before returning to the bridge. A great warm-up for the London marathon later in the year.
