North Wales Travel - North Wales is a great tourist destination in United Kingdom.

Wales is a small and beautiful country in the United Kingdom, bordered by England to its east, and the Atlantic Ocean and Irish Sea to its west.

Shaped by the last Ice Age, some 10,000 years ago, the landscape of Wales is mountainous, particularly in north and mid Wales.This beautiful country is traditionally referred to as "the land of song".

More about North Wales Travel

Cardiff, the capital city of Wales, is the largest city in the country. Cardiff is also the largest media centre in the UK outside of London. Many tourists visit Cardiff every year. (Unfortunately, I could not visit this city).

There are several attractions in this small country, especially in the North. One of the main attractions is Snowdonia Mountains which I was fortunate to visit with my family.

Our hosts in Southport were very impressed with the beauty of North Wales, especially Snowdonia National Park and Snowdon mountain. They had been to this highly beautiful place on few occasions, and decided to take us there.  The distance from Southport was not much, just about 59 miles. 

After driving for about 59 miles to North Wales Travel, watching and enjoying the breathtaking beauty of the landscape, we reached Snowdonia National Park. Then we realized what attracted them to make repeated visits to this amazing part of Wales, UK. The highlight of this country is its astounding natural beauty and no wonder our hosts preferred to return again and again to this place. 

To drive directly from London to Cardiff, it will take approximately 3 hours. You will surely enjoy your North Wales travel because of the astounding scenery.

The people of Wales speak two languages - English and Welsch. Welsh is spoken widely throughout the country and is the first language in many parts of the north and west. It’s called Cymraeg in Welsh, and it’s a language with entirely regular and phonetic spelling.

Other than Snowdonia and Snowdon Mountain, there are many interesting places to explore in this stunningly beautiful place such as Caernarfon Castle, Betws-y-coed village, Conwy,  North Shore Beach and Orme headland etc. North Wale is famous for magnificent castles, Slate Mines and Mountain Railway. We could not visit all these places for want of time, and saw only the places about which I have written.
