North Wales travel guide

Castles · Beaches · Historic Sites
Passionate about being Welsh, residents of North Wales fiercely preserve their language, music, and history. The region’s dramatic landscapes, which notably include the highest peaks in Wales and England, attract tourism from hikers, cyclists, and adventure-seekers of every description. Your trip may also include a ride on some of the country’s most scenic heritage railways here. Despite its relatively small size, North Wales has many historical attractions to fill your travel itinerary. It is home to two World Heritage sites, which include a series of well-preserved Edwardian castles dating back to the 12th and 13th centuries. The Welsh spirit is strong here and most residents use their mother tongue, but don’t be afraid to ask for directions: Everyone also speaks fluent English and will be more than happy to converse in it.
