We are big fans of Wales. Launching a creative hub in Cardiff has opened our eyes to some incredible places nearby. In fact, we’re contemplating staying for a little while after our next visit. Here are eight breathtaking places to visit in Wales that will convince you to do the same.
No, we didn’t just accidentally include an Italian village in our list. Portmeirion was designed with a love for Portofino, an Italian fishing village in mind. It’s since become a popular tourist attraction, and we can see why.
If Snowdonia isn’t already on your bucket list, you should consider adding it right now. It also shouldn’t be underestimated, there are so many places to see. Give yourself a few days to make the most of your visit.
3) Skomer Island
Skomer Island is a hidden gem. You’ll have to catch a boat from the Pembrokeshire coast in the early hours, but it is 110% worth it. Find out how to visit here.
4) Llanrwst, Snowdonia
Llanrwst is on the edge of Snowdonia, and has become a popular tourist attraction. Pont Fawr (pictured) looks pretty amazing in autumn colours.
5) Henrhyd Falls
There are so many incredible waterfalls in Wales that we might as well dedicate a whole blog post to them. Henrhyd Falls is one, located at the south of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The falls have a track, so you can stand behind them if you wish.
6) Ynys Llanddwyn
You’ll find Ynys Llanddwyn in North West Wales. At very high tides, the island becomes isolated from the mainland, but most of the time you can trek across (and get some snazzy Instagrams).
7) Raglan Castle
It seems a bit silly that we are already at number 7 without the mention of a Castle. Wales is plentiful in pretty castles. Raglan Castle is one such castle in Monmouthshire. Find out how you can visit here.
We hope you found our list of places to visit in Wales inspiring! Don’t forget to check out our studio spaces in Cardiff if you’re after a creative workspace.
