If you are planning to visit Wales you will find lots of travel inspiration as well as tips and resources on this page.

Wales (or Cymru in Welsh) is famous for its rugged coastline (over 2,700 kms of it), beautiful National Parks, castles and mountainous landscapes.

With 2 official languages (English and Welsh) and a strong Celtic tradition Wales has a population of around 3 million. Approximately 20% of the population speak Welsh.

Cardiff is the capital and Snowdon (or Yr Wyddfa) is its highest mountain.

If you love castles it is worth noting that Wales has more per square mile than any other country in the world.

Wales is also of course home to the town with the second longest one-word place name in the world – LLanfair PG for short.

The leek and the daffodil are official emblems of Wales.
