Map of Wales
Its deep green valleys, world-class beaches and romantic, wind-bitten castles will always make Wales an alluring destination. But combine these with lively, tongue-twisting towns, a fiery industrial heritage and a thriving cultural scene, and this small country packs an almighty punch. Whether you’re cheering on the Red Dragons, enjoying an adrenaline-pumping descent by mountain bike, or soaking up Cardiff’s architectural revolution, use our map of Wales below to uncover the best the country has to offer.
To experience Wales’ natural beauty, explore the beaches and open moorland of the Gower Peninsula, where sweeping yellow bays and precipitous cliffs, caves and blowholes in the south meet wide, flat marshes and cockle beds in the north. Or, if the weather fails you, pay your respects to Welsh poet Dylan Thomas in pretty Laugharne. Finally, taste Welsh cuisine beyond leeks and lamb by sampling gastronomic delights at Abergavenny’s food festival.
