Wales is a land of incredible natural beauty and is fast becoming one of the most popular destinations in the UK. Learn about Wales’ history in the open air National History Museum and the Big Pit Mining Museum and Ironworks. Don't miss touring Wales' magnificent castles such as Conwy Castle and Chepstow Castle. Spend time in the Snowdonia National Park, perhaps the most beautiful National Park in the UK.
