Wales - Historic attractions and History
Wales is a land of contrasts, from secluded mountain valleys to crowded cities, with a heritage spanning the gamut from rich poetry and song to the grit of the coal mines. We've tried to create a guide to Wales that takes in all those aspects, from the practicalities of getting there to history and culture.
For a quick overview of what to see and do in the various regions of Wales, we suggest you start with our Virtual Tour. Or jump right to a specific region or topic by clicking on the map below or the menu to the right. To find accommodation, explore our Wales Hotel Guide where you can find a special selection of castle hotels or browse our Bed and Breakfast or self-catering cottages directory. And if you'd like some background on the rich heritage and culture of Wales, browse our History of Wales. See also our Castles of Wales photo gallery
