Snowdonia National Park, home to Snowdon, the highest peak in Wales and England (3,650ft).
Now, the national park is absolutely massive. A walker’s dream. Sweeping hills, deep valleys and lucious green grass (not only lucious, but famous, as “The Green Green Grass of Home” was made popular by Tom Jones). If you do visit, a camera is a must have. A map is also pretty important as getting lost in such a large expanse of countryside is not the best idea. Wild camping is also allowed within the national park; check out the rules about wild camping beforehand to brush up on etiquette.
The park is home to many oudoor activity centres that offer a range of actvities; you can horse ride, cycle, try your hand at watersports, mountian biking, golf, fishing and many more. For families, there is King Arthur’s Labyrinth, the Fun Centre (indoor for one of Wales’ rainy days), Glasfryn Parc (go karts, quad bikes, watersports, ten pin bowling), and plenty more.
For those after something less adrenaline-filled Snowdonia offers railways (one up Snowdon itself), heritage centres- castles, slate works, copper mines and museums. Snowdonia also has a coastline if an amble along the beach takes your fancy. Be sure to experience a sunset, whether it be over the hills or over the sea, both are an unmissable beauty.
There’s tons more to do in Snowdonia that isn’t mentioned here- have a little adventure and see what you can find!
