Travel in Wales

Wales has many mountains. Yes, strange thing to say but this does affect how you travel around Wales. Going from East to West is pretty easy. Going from North to South is not so easy. Let's be honest - if you are in a hurry to get from North to South, you're going to need to fly. But Wales isn't the sort of place you want to hurry through. The slower travelling time means you really get to appreciate the beauty of the scenery.

Travelling by car will take about five to six hours and involve going over many mountains, so make sure you are happy going up-hill before you start. If you plan your route well, you can find yourself going through Snowdonia national park with its stunning mountainous vistas.

Trains fare slightly better. There is one high speed train a day between Holyhead and Cardiff, though if we tell you that this also stops at a few stations in England, you can imagine what a circuitous route it takes to get between the two cities. Other than that, you are best off travelling on the local trains, currently operated by Arriva Trains Wales which, despite being slow, go through some stunning scenery.

Things to see in Wales

Wales has many areas of Outstanding National Beauty and National Parks, and these are well worth a visit (and, to be honest, you're probably going to have to drive through at least a few of them, so why not stop and walk around too).

Wales has many areas of Outstanding National Beauty and National Parks

To the North lies Snowdonia national park, the home of Mount Snowdon. This is the tallest mountain in England and Wales, and can be climbed either through the range of footpaths or through getting the Snowdon Mountain Railway, which ascends all the way to the summit. The rest of Snowdonia National Park offers fantastic opportunities for walking.

Just behind Mount Snowdon in the village of Llanberis is Electric Mountain, the home of the Dinorwig Power Station. This is a hydroelectric plant which supplies electricity to the National Grid and which is housed in the biggest cavern system in the United Kingdom.

There are a wide range of heritage, mainly narrow gauge, railways scattered around Wales, especially to the North and West. These railways often date from the industrial revolution and were originally designed to carry mined minerals down towards a connection to be sold on. Nowadays, however, they make for fantastic rides for people of all ages. Many railways offer a discount ticket that gets you entry into other railways in the local area.

    Better than flying
    • Rosslare to Fishguard with Stena Line

      Decided to take car to Ireland.Usually fly but were glad we did it this way. Would like to have had a cabin both ways but return journey told all booked. Food was grim. Would certainly use Stena again

    Ferry awful.
    • Rosslare to Pembroke with Irish Ferries

      If you travel by car to Ireland ferries are a necessary evil. They could be such a good experience but so often tend to be mediocre at best and unpleasant at worst. Much could be done to improve travel by ferry if the onboard experience was better. Ferry companies seem to think that a few noisy games machines, television screens at every opportunity and the offer of overpriced tasteless food should keep the travellers happy. What about quiet comfortable seating to relax and have a nap and some good quality restaurants which would make use of the time and fortify the traveller for their onward journey. Booking on line takes even longer than the days when we booked on the phone. Prices are honed down and all the companies charge the same amount. It is impossible to shop around as the ferry companies have it all sewn up. Where in the past you could make major savings by choosing your time of year or week or day prices now are more or less the same whenever you travel.

    Travel to Ireland
    • Rosslare to Fishguard with Stena Line

      Checking in at the terminal at Fishguard was first class. We found it a good idea to book a meal when we made our online booking.
