Whether you want to explore a new city, scale a vast mountain range or have some time by the sea to clear your mind, Wales has an extensive selection of short break holidays to cater for your every whim.
You can have the best of both worlds during a short break in Wales as the tranquillity of the coast and countryside are only a quick trip away from the hustle and bustle of metropolitan cities such as Cardiff and Swansea. The wide variety of options across the small space of land means you can pack in plenty of fun activities and excursions without wasting too much time travelling between locations.
Nature lovers can spend their days roaming the countryside and adventuring across towering hillsides and some of the UK’s most stunning landscapes in North and South Wales. The country is also home to a collection of historical monuments, castles and museums that can make your break both memorable and enriching.
However, if you’re looking for a more active break, then Wales has you covered as well. The region is home to some of the best cycling and mountain biking opportunities, as well as everything from mountain climbing, abseiling and gorge walking. An 870-mile coastal path is littered with beautiful spots for a short break including the awe-inspiring Pembrokeshire coastline to the South and the famous Isle of Anglesey in North Wales.
