Places to Visit in Wales
Wales is just one of the places you can explore in our lovely VW camper. The beautiful sandy beaches along the west coast are some of the best in the world, while the mountains of Snowdonia are as epic as they come. There are three great national parks: the Brecon Beacons, Snowdonia and the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
From the minute you cross one of the bridges you’ll see stunning landscapes, unspoilt coastlines and picturesque towns and villages that are just waiting to be explored. Miles of scenic walks on the on the Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path and cycle paths await you, as do some of the best water based activities.
