Croeso

That’s Welsh for ‘welcome’, and you’ll feel it everywhere you go in Wales.

Welcome to a country of breathtaking natural beauty, where every day a new experience awaits. Around every corner, a hidden gem: colourful fishing villages and cosy inns, mountain vistas and cliff-top trails, sandy bays and bustling cities.

Here you can discover 640 castles; more than any other country in Europe. This is the land of magic and myth, of princes and dragons. A land that has created writers and poets, musicians and athletes, architects and engineers, scientists and philanthropists. A land that has inspired generations to achieve their dreams.

This magical land is our home – and your home too.
