There’s nothing like a good castle to get me excited about traveling. Which is perfect, because my great British road trip has put me in the way of a lot of them. And they happen to be in Wales. So today I want to share with you 7 castles in Wales that have won me over on my journey.
I’ve wanted to travel to Portmeirion since before I moved to London. I read an article about this fairy-tale land in North Wales, and it sparked my imagination. But 10 years on, I’ve never managed to make the trip. Until now, that is. My great British road trip has taken me to North Wales, and spending 2 days in Portmeirion is at the top of my list.
My great British road trip has brought me to North Wales. One of the highlights of my time here is spending 2 Days in Anglesey. I’ve been intrigued by this glittering isle in the Irish Sea since Prince William and Kate lived here during his time as a Search and Rescue pilot, and I can’t wait to experience its wild beauty firsthand.
My great British road trip has started strong with stops in some of England’s most beautiful destinations. But after a week on the road, it’s time to head to Wales. I’ve spent time in the Brecon Beacons and the south over the last few years, and I’ve been itching to explore more of the north. Now my patience is being rewarded with the discovery of 7 great places on my road trip in North Wales.
It’s summer, and if you’re like me you’re itching for a weekend getaway or two. While I usually look to Europe for my shorter trips, I’ve learned over the years that the UK has as much to offer as the continent. And while most of my British weekend breaks are to Scotland, I’ve had some amazing getaways in Wales. If you’re in the mood for a Welsh adventure, here are A Lady in London’s 5 picks for weekend breaks in Wales.
I always enjoy traveling, but when there’s food involved I love it. Food festivals are some of my favorite excuses to hop on a plane or train and immerse myself in local culinary culture. Which is why I’m excited to spend an autumn weekend in Wales at the annual Abergavenny Food Festival.
The best things about my home town in California are the hiking trails within a minute’s walk of my front door. They’re the things I miss most now that I’m a city dweller. But thankfully I don’t have to travel far from London to find the same setup. In fact, I’m in Wales now hiking Pen y Fan—the highest peak in south Wales—right from my doorstep.
