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.
