St David’s Day falls on March 1st, and is a prominent day in the Welsh Calendar and marking the day that Saint David died in 589. He was buried at the site of St David’s Cathedral in Wales where his shrine was a popular place of pilgrimage in the Middle Ages.
More about beautiful Wales
The valleys and coastline of South Wales have long been documented in the works of Dylan Thomas and in the legendary songs of Tom Jones. Also renowned for its monumental castles, mining heritage, rugby and the tv hit series Gavin & Stacey. Expect to see daffodils and leeks worn on St David’s Day (1st March) and also by cheering supporters of Welsh rugby.
Sandwiched between the Snowdon summit in North Wales and the Valleys of South Wales you’ll find Mid Wales, equally rich in striking scenery, mining and historic castles and a jaw dropping coastline. 30% of Wales’s population speak the Celtic language of Welsh the majority of whom are in North and Mid Wales so you will be sure to receive a warm ‘Croeso i Gymru’ (Welcome to Wales) and experience feeding red kites or compete in the World Bog Snorkelling Championships!
North Wales has some of the best beaches in the country and for those living in Birmingham, Liverpool or Manchester, they are really easy to access. Forget tacky seaside towns, these seaside places are traditional and some even have Punch and Judy shows.
The country of culture
Think culture, history, archaeology, forest, coast and water. North Wales ticks all the boxes.
The most popular cities in North Wales are Llandudno, Wrexham, Caernarfon and Bangor along with Conwy, Betws-Coed and Porthmadog and Holyhead.
With more than 600 castles in Wales (more per square meter than anywhere in the world) and an 870-mile winding path around the entire coast of Wales, you’re never too far from a spectacular historical monument or a beautiful sandy beach. None more so than in North Wales which also proudly boasts to being home to Snowdon, the highest mountain in England and Wales. Be it these magnificent sites or the chance to go puffin spotting, there’s plenty to see and do for everyone in North Wales.

I was worried about a property my ex wanted to transfer to me instead of making the court ordered lump sum payment. On one hand I was celebrating and on the other I was convinced that my ex was trying to pull the wool over my eyes. Ceri dealt with my anxiety swiftly (within a couple of hours) everything soon made sense. I was getting a great deal. For me, anxiety is caused by “situations” – normally the “unknown”. – ASM Berkshire
