A visit to Wales will reward any type of traveler. Visitors will find that the country that sits on the West coast of Britain is chock full of opportunity, says an article on Hand Luggage Only.
“If you’re visiting the UK for the first time, or indeed, if you live close by, Wales is pretty easy to reach by car or train, with the West Wales coast reached from London in about 4.5 hours – so what’s stopping you?” they ask.
In terms of amazing things to do in the region, start with Pembrokeshire National Park.
“Pembrokeshire National Park is perched right on the coast of southwest Wales and the perfect place to explore the country’s rugged, natural, coastline. Keep your eyes peeled for dolphins, explore the beautiful landscapes and walk the coastal paths that criss-cross this area,” they recommend.
Another suggestion is Aberystwyth.
“Take a tour of the National Library of Wales, ramble up Constitution Hill (or take the cliff railway) and walk the far-stretching promenade. Oh… and of course, not forgetting a night out in the Town’s infamous night club, Pier Pressure (on the pier) – where you’ll dance the night away over the sea itself,” recommends Hand Luggage Only.

From there, you are going to want to take a train.
“Direct from Aberystwyth take the steam train that departs almost every day in the summer for the glistening waterfalls of Devil’s Bridge. Take in the beauty of the west Wales valleys whilst the train slowly climbs the edges of this gorgeous region,” they suggest.
