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.


Newport is a city with a surprising history. It all started with the Romans, continued through the centuries with wealthy aristocrats and continues to make history in modern times through being the first Welsh city to host the Ryder Cup. See it for yourself.


Within Cardiff you'll find unique attractions, top class entertainment and quality shopping with a difference - all within walking distance.


Straddling the Wales/England border is the Wye Valley, officially recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the Vale of Usk. It is a walkers' paradise.

The Valleys

In the Valleys of Southern Wales, famous the world over for their pioneering role in the industrial revolution, there are a wealth of outdoor pursuits, stunning scenery and cultural and historical attractions.


Stretching from Ogmore by Sea to Kenfig, the Golden Coast is a spectacular mix of rugged cliffs, golden sandy beaches and pretty little towns and villages.
