Southern Wales has a lot to offer whether you are looking for a
city break, relaxing on the beach or a more adventurous action
packed activity holiday we have it all!
For such a small area, only around 75km (46.5 miles) east to
west and around 50km(30 miles) from North to South, Southern
Wales certainly fits a lot in. Spectacular countryside, a
National Park and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are all
packed into the region as well as two cities (one being the
nation's capital, Cardiff) and 96km of coastline.
We are immensely proud of our rich history and culture,
which can been seen throughout our many castles and
museums, and of our ancient
language which you can try out for yourself.
Above all else though, we are proud of our friendliness and
welcome that we offer visitors. Why not drop by and
experience it for yourself.
