Events in Wales during March

A great month to be in Wales. Why? St David's Day of course. 

Winter is coming to an end and we start to enjoy the increased warmth of spring. Far and wide, a spread of yellow daffodils and birds singing in preparation for those long warmer evenings. Time to get out in Wales, whether walking, running or...watching the 6 nations.

    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.

  • 03 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.
