Wales has a well-developed railway network. The main railway company is Arriva. There are trains operating between and Wales as well. Major Welsh cities served by trains are Cardiff and Swansea. The railway network is denser in the southern region of Wales.
You must visit Cardiff, Wales’ capital, with its castle, its museum and its bay. Then take the train to Bangor. It’s a little city but as there are lots of students it’s a lively place. Jump on a First Great Western train to reach Swansea where you will enjoy the lovely quay lined with beautiful boats, and since you’re here, go and see the Glynn Vivian Gallery.
Travelling by train will enable you to discover that Wales has countless castles. Trekking in one of the three National Parks, you may enjoy the view made up with lakes, rivers, and coastline. If you are looking for beaches, go to Llanduno or see the West Shore’s sandy dunes.
You should get a train to Wrexham; it is a lovely and charming place to go shopping, where you will like to walk around the market and the arcades. Or you can take the train to Pwllheli. Nearby the train station you will find the street shops and markets.
Eat & Drink
Cardiff provides great eateries where you can find traditional dishes as well as New World sophistication. Fish and ships is easy to find, but since you are in Wales, try lamb stew or welsh faggots. Taste the chwisgi, the local whisky.
Climb to the summit of Snowdon (1,085 metres high), and visit the Hafod Eryri centre, the thrills and spills of the views will be memorable.
