Travel Guide for Families – Wales

Wales is the land of castles and has everything from energetic cities to breath-taking scenery’s. This country has a lot to offer that will make your visit a memorable family experience. Here are a couple of our recommendations for families travelling to Wales.

Cardiff Castle
Explore Cardiff Castle’s 2,000 years of history, learn about the knights and nobles, look at the marvellous interior and watch a medieval performance. The Cardiff Castle offers various events throughout the year, making sure that you and your family get the ultimate medieval experience.

Freshwater West in Pembrokeshire
Do you remember the French invasion scene in Robin Hood? Well, this is the set Ridley Scott used in the movie. This is also the place where they built the shell cottage in ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’. If your children are a Robin Hood or Harry Potter fan, or maybe both – visit Freshwater West for a fun filled day out.

Rhyl Miniature Railway
Bring your children to Britain’s oldest miniature railway in Rhyl & Prestatyn and take a ride around Marine Lake. Also, make sure to visit the new Central Station building and get to know the railway’s history.

GreenWood Forest Park
Even though you’re on holiday, think about your carbon footprint. Why not enjoy a family day out with a green conscious at the GreenWood Forest Park in Snowdonia? Here you can try the world’s first environmentally-friendly rollercoaster, go on the jungle boat adventure, or learn how to build a shelter. The park has plenty of different activities and rides that will put a smile on yours and the children’s face.

Big Pit: National Coal Museum
Put on a hard hat, turn on the head lamp and be ready to go down 90 metres in a real mineshaft. The underground tour gives you an insight about the coal industry in Wales while it’s amusing and educational for everyone.
