The Best Times to Visit Wales 

The start of a new year is a great time to blow the cobwebs away. January is fantastic for a reset with crisp walks that will clear the mind and help work of the excesses of Christmas. It is also the perfect time for romantics to visit, as 25th January is St Dwynwen’s Day, the Welsh equivalent of St Valentine’s Day. 

Springtime is one of the best times to visit Wales for walking. Flowers come into bloom and the temperature is ideal for long hikes, whether through the forests of the Snowdonia National Park or along the coastal path of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. 

In summertime, it is all about the beaches. From a family-friendly beach resort like Abersoch for fun-filled days building sandcastles, to coastal cottages for two on the Gower Peninsula that are perfectly placed for water sports by day and relaxing in style by night, there is something for everyone. 

Summer also marks festival season and bookworms should visit Hay-on-Wye for the Hay Festival that offers a wide range of literature-themed events. If sailing and all things nautical is more your scene, a host of regattas are held too, offering fun for participants and spectators alike. 

On the countdown to Christmas, a trip to a beautifully decorated historic home such as Powis Castle in Powys, will get you into the festive spirit. Meanwhile, Christmas markets like Swansea offer the opportunity to purchase traditional handcrafted items and local produce as gifts.
